Grade 3 ankle sprain
An_253059 posted:
I sprained my ankle 2 months ago (they said grade 3). I have been in 2 different casts and now in an AFO brace for 10 days (they said I will be in it 6-12 months). Have to add I'm 67 y.o. I have to sleep in it with the tennis shoe because I get up during the night and it's time consuming to have to put it all beck on before getting out of bed! Anyway, sometimes I have such a burning sensation. If anyone has any experience like mine or has any light to shed, please tell me. I'm due to go to Australia in 2 months and I'm concerned that I won't be able to go into the water, snorkel, etc. since I am supposed to always be in the AFO and tennis shoes. Thanks.
