I had os trigonum surgery 4 weeks ago
I was in a cast for the first two weeks the surgeon said I should be off crutches two weeks later.
It's now two weeks later.
My ankle is somewhat swollen and a little sore, but the real problem is that | have pins and needles on the bottom of my feet so bad that I can barely stand.
Is this normal? It's gotten a little bit better, but not much.
My next appointment is in three weeks - should I wait or try to get in earlier?
If the pain is of such a nature to cause you significant distress, I would certainly call my physician and attempt to schedule an earlier appointment or a medication can be prescrbed to eliminate of minimize the discomfort.
