Sorry for the long post!
About 6 months ago I fell down stairs and badly sprained my ankle and grazed just above it which left me with cellulitis, I was put on antibiotics for a month with 8 trips to a&e/ my local doctors! My cellulitis seemed to heal okay after the course of antibiotics along with my ankle but there is still a visible dent/slight discolouration where I had the cellulitis.
About 3 months ago I went over on my ankle again, it swelled instantly but after a few hours I could walk on it with a slight discomfort. I never bothered getting any X-rays or going to the doctors as i had been so much the time before. 3 months on and my ankle is just as swollen, especially on the outside on the bone, I can walk on it fine but sometimes get a shooting pain when walking or if I move it too fast. I can only bend it so far to the side and when sitting with my legs crossed, putting weight on the outside of my ankle is really sore.
Is this normal and part of the healing process or should I go see about it? I don’t want to waste dr’s time and is the dent/discolouration normal after cellulitis?
Again sorry for the long post and I hope this makes sense.
