Hi, anyone in the UK with an avulsion fracture? What treatment and follow up did you receive? I went to A&E had an xray and was told a ligament had pulled a piece of bone and chipped it - and that was it - it will take a long time to heal, wear some walking shoes (1 week on and I still can't even fit my club foot into my slipper never mind a walking shoe!) and goodbye! I've found out online myself that it's an avulsion fracture!
I'm stuck in the house hobbling about on a socked unstable foot until the swelling goes down enough that I can wear something I can go out in.
I'm waking at night in agony due to stretching and moving my foot in my sleep, really worried this is making my injury worse.
It would be nice to think I'm not the only one in this situation but I would also hate to think someone else is suffering!
