Its still hurts my question is should i be still be hurting, or could the braces on my ankle be causing the pain ... or maybe the concert i went to Thursday agitated it??.. my ? is is it normal to be in pain 5 days after surgery ..

    wish you well, but i agree with Strummer. I'd go see your doctor. You might have a screw loose. :hehehe:
    Just messing, do hope for the best.

    How do you do this fishing? Truly curious.
    Seems like there is more than one type of "CAST" to your approach.
    Just don't get "hooked" from you know ?

    OK i'll stop now.
    Fell better and for the love of .... stay out of the mosh pit on a bad ankle.

    That's good it's pain from after the surgery. But definitely @summerfan and STD are right with seeing a doctor.

    While you wait elevate the foot as much as possible and don't stand on it for long periods of time. Specially not the concert and all the walking I know the generally happens at concerts.

    Also ibuprofen will help with swelling. And that might take away some of the pain, due too maybe the swelling.

    i would say the odds are better that you screwed it up by going to a concert.
