Severe Compound Fractured Ankle

I'm a 44 year old male. I had a 30' Fall with 120' on tumbling on concrete. While fishing I feel off the back side of a dam and tumbled down the spillway.
I ended up tearing my foot off just above the ankle. My foot was being held on by 1" of skin. The surgery went great. Thank good for good Doctors. It's been 6 weeks and I'm still having a lot of pain. How long will this last. Im still in a case and will be for some time to come. Therapy has not even been brought up yet. HOW LONG WILL THE PAIN LAST?
Thanks, Pat McDonald - Oregon

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
