Question: I broke my ankle in September - it was a bad break with all three bones being broken. I had surgery and didn't have any pain. I have broken my other ankle twice and have had no pain. My right ankle is extremely painful now. I am walking with a cane and going to out-patient therapy. A different dr. did this surgery. It seems like when we are going to have snow, I get excessive pain and that is where I am now. What to do?

Detailed Answer:

Hello!

Thanks for posting your query.

I have gone through your query in detail,first tell me which ankle had broken in September.

Kindly upload your images of ankle before and after surgery for better advice.

Till than you can do hot fomentation, compression, physiotherapy and some pain killer like Aceclofenac and Paracetamol.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
