Hi,
If you feel throbbing pain at that part then it is likely that there may be infection taking place and you consult your orthopedic surgeon for exam and treatment.
If is painless you do not worry as there may be scar or swelling of tissues which will gradually be ok.

I might need an ankle arthroscopy. Does it hurt?

I have high back pain in my thoracic vertebra. I have sharp shooting pain and spasms. I pain increases if I move especially if I twist, bend forward, or backwards. Deep breaths which are so tiny back it hurt. I have had back spasms throughout my entire back for the past 3 weeks, ever since I got my hip surgery (femoral head impingement (arthroscopic). The pain occurred this morning after I bent down and came up really fast from putting clothes into the washer. Any ideas what it could be? There is no discoloration, no pain with palpating
