After a tibia and fibula fracture on foot, and having surgery on it, will the foot have a full range of motion after surgery? Currently foot is stiff.
Probally not: What happens is when you fracture bones like the Tibia and Fibula. These bones help form the ankle joint. If these bones move it is very difficult to put them back 100 percent in place also you will usually have ligament damage along with the fracture if the bones are displaced. If surgery is needed then it probally is displaced. The doctor can try to replace the bones but you will probally have A ...Read more

I had surgery done for a navicular fracture today in my foot. How long does the nerve block last? Been 6 hours and I'm still numb/can't wiggle toes

In general, blocks can expect to last between 8 and 24 hours ...Read more

Probably not: It is always smart to check with the surgeon if there is signficant pain in a new area following surgery, but gravity is usually the culprit here.

You will see this in bad ankle sprains even without a break. ...Read more
