Fractured my ankle in June of 2016. Was playing ball, and heard a pop in my ankle and that is where it started. was initially told it was a sprain, went back into the hopsital after a week for xrays and was again told it was a sprain, was called back later and was told it was a posterior malleolour fracture. Later i was told it was an avulsion fracture. Spent 10 weeks in a walking boot, and was told to take it off immediately, and start physio, by the orthopedic surgeon, it is now September. did roughly 3-4 months of physio, and was told that the physiotherapist can do nothing to help me until i get an MRI. Recently got the MRI results back, and was confirmed that i fractured my medial malleolus, posterior malleolus and an avulsion fracture with inflammatuon in my ankle as well. Doctor told me that the avulsion fracture (ununited ossicle) was probably to small to do surgery on, and that my pain would eventually go away and i should be able to walk, stand and twist my ankle without pain evetually. Currently i have to crack and pop my ankle to make it feel somewhat normal, constant pain in the ankle, lucky if i get 20 minutes of walking without pain, and is very weak. Any suggestions? Would it be smart to get a second opinion on it?
