sounds to familiar - 3 months After surgery/5th metatorsal

hi,well I was just wondering how long it takes to heal from the surgery.I find when I have been on my foot for an hour the top of my foot where they put the screww really hurts,it seems to cause me more pain since the surgery.I have gone for check ups and they say the s-ray shows the screw is holding my bone in place,but why so much pain?The bone graph does not hurt antmore.I also find that my foot still goes purple when on it,and I seem to be retaing water when I have been on it.When I am lying in bed it feels fine,but as soon as I get up and put pressure on it it is so painful in that area.Could the screw be rubbing some how against my bones.Thank you.

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.
