I broke my Talus 6 mos ago racing MX(came up short on a triple jump). I had partially shattered it along with the calcaneous. 2 screws later to the neck of the Talus, I am now walking with a cain but the ankle a foot are very stiff and sore. I cannot fully bend my big toe which is causing me problems walking. My ankle is turned inward and therapy keeps trying to straighten it out. No signs of AVN but the doc says that I'm not out of the woods yet (concerns me). My foot has pins and needles on the bottom and feels very weird - almost numb. Do you have that problem?
My doc says to try water therapy like swimming to help get the foot moving. Otherwise he thinks I'm doing well. I don't know if he's just saying that.
I've broken many bones but nothing like this. I cannot believe how stiff and sore my ankle is every day. Any idea when I can expect to feel better. 1 year, 2 years? I wish someone could tell me if your foot ever feels normal again and what makes it so numb?
Thanks for any feedback out there.
