I broke my ankle (fibula) exactly one week ago and am STILL not in a hard cast. I was put in a boot the day of and told to follow up in a week. We went back early by a couple days because I was in unbearable pain and they put me in a soft/temporary cast. It happened at work so I have to wait for a worker's comp representative to set up an appointment with an orthopedic doc. So far I've heard NOTHING even though I've been calling them almost every day. Most of the clinic's here are booking appointments at least two weeks out, which means my ankle will be out of a cast for at least three weeks all together. Is this OK?? I don't understand why I'm having such a hard time getting a cast. I'm worried that it will heal wrong or take more time. Help!!!
An ankle sprain is an injury to the bands of ligaments that surround and connect the bones of the leg to the foot. The injury typically happens when you accidentally twist or turn your ankle in an awkward way. This can stretch or tear the ligaments that hold your ankle bones and joints together.Heel & Ankle Pain Treatment Options Available at DPMC
