Not really sure why I'm posting as I know it's just because the ankle is stiff but owww! My ankle hurts! I was fine walking in the cast for the past 4 weeks but now I'm cast-free, it's stiff to the point of any bit of pressure from any angle seems to be painful. If any of you have been in similar situations, how long did it take for the ankle to be not so stiff? Sleeping last night was painful as which ever way I placed my foot, it had pressure on the joint. I've not taken painkillers/ibuprofen for the last month and for some reason will feel like a failure to go back to taking something (crazy I know). I've got a tubigrip on it, but I don't think that's particularly helping (it's not hindering, but not really doing much - and when I take it off, all the dead skin flakes off too - eurgh!). Just cross with myself because feel like I've gone back to square one - even though bone isn't broken. Thanks for reading.
