intramedullary nailing done for right tibia

I now have a creaking sound when I put pressure on the leg. It sounds like my ankle bone is pulling the metal rod down in the tibia bone when I walk. Any ideas on this?

How long ago did you have the surgery?  This can happen if it was recent I believe.

I'm 30 days post op. It feels like the top of my ankle bone shearing against the bottom of my tibia bone. Not necessarily painful but a lot of pressure and discomfort.
Have you called your doctor on this one?  Do you have any other follow up appointments since you are only 30 days post op?
