A week ago I fell on the ice and broke my ankle in 2 places I immediately went to a&e by ambulance and got X-rays to confirm the break in my ankle! It was very swollen on the area of breakage obviously no open skin and no visible bruising around that area the following day I had a appointment at the fracture clinic I had more X-rays to see if I needed a operation but they said it was healing well and that I wouldn't need a operation! But still had my cast on a couple days after I started to walk around and do house work duties without my crutches and walking on my cast (which I know I shouldn't do) 4 days later I woke up and could see brusing on the top of my foot Black & purple! I hadn't been elevating my foot hardly at all so I think that may be why the past couple of days I've started to elevate my foot and when I eventually stand up after elevating my cast goes all tight around my ankle and it's sort of a burning sensation for about a minute or 2 and I have to stand still then it goes away and just repeats when I ever I stand up after elevating! I don't wanna go to doctors and waste their time incase it is normal???
