i recently had ankle replacement surgery. i was prescribed oxycodone

i recently had ankle replacement surgery. i was prescribed oxycodone and xeralto. within a couple days i started itching, first my head then my arms, like it was slowly moving down my body. if i scratch it it does become red and raised. i've taken benedryl and put cortisone cream. no fever or swelling in the throat. but this itching is making me crazy and making my recovery a nightmare.

Hey! Back in July I was in a terrible car wreck and shattered my ankle. After undergoing surgery the surgeon replaced my ankle with a cadaver ankle and a metal plate and screws. Recently I have been experiencing a lot of problems with my fibula and over the last couple days a knot/bump has began to form about six inches from my ankle (on my fibula) where the metal plate is located. I was wondering what the bump is and where it is from?

I had a nerve block done recently (6 months ago) due to a total ankle replacement. Still have tremendous amount of numbness in the foot operated on and with constant nerve stabbing type pains. Do I have nerve damage? DPM said it should go away in another 6 months. Comments or suggestions, please- Am 74 years old.

I had an ankle replacement 11 years ago that failed right about 10 years. I have now had a second ankle replacement along with fusion of the talus and that is now failing to heal around the stem of the prosthesis. The doctor I have been seeing says that the next step rather than extending the stem of the upper leg portion of the prosthetic is to fuse the joint with cadaver bone. is this the best option?
