Fractured when twisted ankle. Has anyone been told to stop wearing aircast boot and then told to put back on sometime after. Was told could leave boot off after 4 weeks and wear trainers. Foot still hurt so went doctor was sent for X-ray to see if healed as doctor only pressed foot when said leave boot off. I waited a week to get X-ray - told results would be with Doctor 5 days therefore presumed must be healed or would have been told there and then. Looked online for result after 5 days and just said X-ray result N/A so again presumed nothing to tell. Foot still hurting after 2 more weeks phoned doctors to be told X-ray had been abnormal also said 4th and 5th metatarsal not just 5th so go to A and E. Went to local one as had previously gone to one near daughter and so 2 weeks after second X-ray get told to put boot back on and go back to original hosp where I was given a return appointment of 5th Sept but told more or less I wouldn't really need to keep it. Local hospital wouldn't give me an explanation as didn't have info or X-ray from other hospital to compare. I thought all your info was shared automatically.
