So, I tore my ATFL in my right ankle about eight years ago, back when I used to run too much as a teenager--and it took them years to finally realize
that I was actually very hurt and not just complaining about simple sprains. Well, I underwent surgery at the end of last month with a great
orthopedic surgeon in my area, and I'm still non-weight bearing at the moment, but I was wondering if it was normal for me to be feeling some pain
still. I got the surgery on the 28th of September and I'm still in a cast. The pain I'm feeling might be in my head, but I feel like I can feel
where they drilled into my bone. I don't know if I'm psyching myself out or not, and I'm doing great besides that weird pain. I have minimal
swelling, the stitches (I had 5 small ones) have been removed, and I'm able to feel my foot and move my toes and stuff. But I was hoping that either
this bone pain is in my head or that it will go away very soon because it's annoying.
For those of you interested, this is what they did to me, but be forewarned, the video is very graphic:

Anyway, I have no metal in my ankle--and according to my surgeon the fibers they used will eventually become part of my body. I think it might be a
fairly new procedure, but I'd appreciate any input from knowledgeable sources.
