I stepped down stairs and broke my tibia plateau on 2 sides. Had surgery with 2 plates an screws. Right after surgery the inside part of my foot hurt and I had no feelund on the side of my big toe. The foot pain bothered me more than the knee. I was really scared to start weight bearing at the 6 week time because my foot felt like it had blisters on the bottom of it. It has now been 12 weeks since the surgery. I am walking slowly, but I still have some foot pain. My pT. and Podiatrist both said I would just have to wait it out. But I could walk better if the pain was gone. Has anyone had a very tight feeling in their shin and calf area?
