| Michele, it sounds like you are doing fine. I'm sure x-rays were taken at some point, weren't they? That's how they most likely determined if you needed surgery. I have never noticed that fibro slowed down my healing of anything! I had major abdominal surgery and the doctors were amazed at how fast I healed...and I had already been diagnosed with fibro.|
My mother broke her ankle when she was in her mid-30's and it took quite a while to feel better but she still had a little problem occasionally decades later.
My father-in-law broke his ankle and did need surgery and it too took a while to heal.
Neither of these people had fibro. I think you need to remember this is a weight bearing part of your body and it constantly moves when you walk! So it's not getting the "rest" then let's say a broken arm would get. You don't start lifting heavy things when a cast is taken off your arm because it's still healing. So I think this is what is going on with your ankle and will take more time. If you can walk without help I think that's good. I'm not a doctor but I think you ortho would run more tests if they didn't think things were healing normally.
I'm glad you are moving forward. That's important.
