I broke my ankle on a visit to England on the 15th February. I returned to Spain with an aircast boot which was removed on the 26th March. The consultant just looked at the X/ray and said it had heeled very quickly and I could remove the boot and start to walk on it gradually. He never looked at my foot. I was very surprised because I am 67 years old, a diabetic and suffer with rheumatoid arthritis. He said if I had any problems to go to my GP and get referred back to him. It is now 6 weeks since the boot was removed and I am suffering with a red swollen foot, which feels very hot and the pain is travelling up from my ankle to my knee. I have told my husband I need to go to A and E because my foot doesn't feel right. He said it is ok and my symptoms are to be expected but he is not a doctor. I am concerned ans don't want to lose my foot. Any advice?
