Is discomfort normal after ankle surgery?

It is normal to have some degree of swelling and discomfort after you have ankle surgery. The key to relieving this and healing your joint is to carefully follow all your post operation instructions. The sharp, acute pain should subside within a few days, but swelling and soreness may last for several weeks, depending on your individual situation.

Elevating the affected ankle above heart level allows the pooling fluid to leak back out of your tissues, instead of collecting around the joint, which minimizes swelling. Icing also discourages swelling, as well as helping to numb the pain. If you’re struggling with excruciating post-op joint discomfort after several days, don’t just wait and hope it will subside.
