Previous ankle injury giving me problems

Let’s see, so I broke my ankle a few months ago and I had it surgically repaired and has been hurting since and it really agitates my foot. I have asked my doctor about this but he says I need to give it time but I need another opinion on why it still hurts so bad

    Hello and thank you for your question. I do need more information as exactly when your foot hurts? Where your foot hurts? What movements do you feel the pain? After any injury and surgery you have a period of immobilization. This immobilization makes the rest of the muscles of the foot weaker. When you return to movement after your immobilization the foot cannot resist the new stress you are putting it under and you get pain. I’d ensure you are doing foot recovery which includes rolling your foot on a golf ball or lacrosse ball every day for 10 minutes followed by 5 minutes of calf stretching. I hope this helps!
