 Re: Anyone feel like your leg is fake?

Absolutely!

I've got two plates, one with 6 screws, one with 5. Plus 3 other screws all holding my ankle together. From the moment the cast came off its felt completely 'unreal'.

When I took off the strip dressings after surgery cuts had healed I was amazed at how much numbness I had around my foot and ankle. Especially where the plates were. It was great in one way - instead of shaving my legs around the wounds I used tweezers - didn't feel a thing! :)

I'm starting weight bearing with crutches & that especially is just feeling weird. Its almost like trying to walk with a prosthetic.

My foot always feels so much colder now too. Does that get better with healing?
