I am four months post-op and am having pain in my ankles and feet when I go to get up from a sitting position. The pain is more like stiffness and I am not experiencing any swelling. I have also noticed that I am stumbling occationally when I walk, which I experienced before surgery. Has anyone experienced this? It feels like I've been walking around in heels all day!!!Doc says x-rays look great and said that these where issues that we have to deal with due to this was a salvage surgery.It's very hard to deal with the fact that I will never be able to do the things that I use to do before my injury. Doc says no work, sports,normal daily activities that we don't even think about when were well.Doc gave my husband strick instructions on what I can and cant do because I am a very stuborn person and will try to do them anyway. And its so bad now because the kids will tell on me if I do somthing that forbidden (laundry,vacuuming). I just can't come to gips with this and Im really getting tired of everyone treating me like Im going to break or something!!!Im thankful to the doc that I will be able to walk the rest of my life but I am bored out of my skull!!!!! I was a very athletic person so I don't have a lot of hobbies. Anyone have any suggestions to stop me from going crazy?
