I broke my ankle 5 weeks ago, Urgent care said it wasn’t broken but I couldn’t even touch a toe to the ground. I got into Ortho 4 days later but my ankle was so swollen you could see the veins and my toes looked like sausages. The Dr. looked at the X-rays from UC and said she couldn’t see a break either then the Dr put me in a Cam Boot and said 2 weeks NWB and call and give update. Well 2 weeks later my foot and ankle were still swollen and hurt to touch on side, shin and foot and said to get MRI and 4 days later said I had broken my fibula and had a partial torn tendons. So low it’s going on 5 weeks and my toes always fell swollen and they are and I still can’t see my veins in my foot, I can’t touch the outside of my ankle or side of shin and nor it feels like the ball if my foot ( when I am changing and put the slightest pressure) feels like there’s a big bump. When I try to wiggle my toes my big toe moves a little then the next toe doesn't move and then the last three when I try sends like a strong tingle or small shock up my foot. I am still NWB and always have it elevated, could something else be going on since it’s still swollen ( size of a baseball) .
