Ankle surgery done, later slipped and fell, have intermittent tingling over the area. Cause?

I had surgery on my ankle last week Wednesday. Today I slipped on my crutches and fell down..I tried to keep weight off that ankle because I am not supposed to be putting any weight on that ankle. The foot hit the floor but I am unsure if I put any weight on it. It does not currently hurt but it does tingle and has been doing that for the last 2 hours or so.

Thanks for writing to us.
The sudden pressure in the area has caused the tingling and the pain. This is likely to subside in next few days. You can get a check X-ray done to see any bone injury.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
