i'm just wondering about the healing process after shattering my ankle given 21 screws and blade. i'm 58 yrs, its been 5 month after surgery and i have major swolleing that i cannot wear shoes.. will it ever go away? will i ever walk normal again? i still limp, stiff and major swelling... i can only walk around the house.   is this normal? i'm very worried about the future.

I'm a registered and certified orthopedic technologist...so my specialty is really casting, splinting, and fracture care.  Just want you to know who you're talking to :)  In order to answer your questions I would need more information.  What kind of fracture did you have?  Was it open, meaning the bone came through the skin?  How did you fracture your ankle?
