I just broke my lateral malleolus and my fifth metatarsal on Feb. 13th; flip flop mishap. Have been to see the ortho and was placed in an Aircast (nearly up to the knee) and am non weight bearing for at least 2 weeks. I have been doing everything I have been told to do: resting, icing, taking Ibuprofen 600 every six hours religiously, keeping the boot on 24/7 as told by my ortho, even bought an elevation pillow for leg injuries to keep it elevated most of the day. Problem is that my heel won't stay in the bottom of the boot which is causing my ankle to hurt and my toes to sometimes tingle and hurt. I have called the office twice now over this and no one seems too concerned. I have not had surgery as I have a stable ankle fracture the ortho hopes the boot can help. I friggin hate this thing! Anyone in my boat?
