I had a right ankle triple fusion and three toe correction 3 months ago. I've had 2 x rays showing the ankle healing well and fusing ( according to the Surgeon ).
I had the cast finally removed last Wednesday. Up to this point I've not really had any pain at all until they removed the cast. Now the ankle hurts and it swells up a lot.
I must add that I am walking on it a fair bit. Is this pain and swelling to be expected? As it has gone so well thus far I thought when the cast was off I would be out and about, so as to speak.
Has anybody else on here had a triple fusion and can relate to my experience?
I didn't ask the Doctors what to expect as after waiting 3 hours I just wanted to get out of the place!
