I was in a head on collision in June and fractured the tibial plateau on my left leg. Surgery and now the lower part of my knee is plates and screws and resulted in 3 months of no weight bearing with elevated leg. Today I was released to fully weight bare and begin waking. There is no pain in my knee, but the bottom of my foot is extremely tender and feels like I’m walking on sharp gravel when I’m walking on my carpet and makes it extremely difficult to walk. Is this normal after not walking on that foot for 3 months? My foot was extremely swollen and has since shedded all skin on the bottom of that foot when it returned to proper size. I imagine that is the reason for such tenderness. Has anybody been through something similar and had the same sensitivity issue? How long did it take to return to normal?
