Four weeks ago I broke my fibula at the ankle. Non-displaced so no surgery. One week from today I am supposed to get my walking boot and be able to start putting some weight on it. I’ve been feeling really good the last week. All the pain has finally left even when I bump my cast. And today I fell on it. Fell backwards while on crutches and instinct had me put my broken leg down. Had a sharp pain when I did. I ended up falling all the way down, I don’t know if maybe the pain had me trying to lift it back up but I didn’t stop the fall. Just worried that I might have done some damage to set me back. Hurts lightly on the front of the ankle now and not where the break was and hurts a bit if I tap my cast which it wasn’t doing anymore. Don’t seem to have any swelling or not much. I didn’t try to prevent swelling because I wanted to know if it would. Hoping maybe it was just a shock to my ankle joint since it hasn’t been used in so long. Of course it happened right at 6 on a Friday so I can’t call my doctor till Monday. Any thoughts on if I may have done some damage or do you think maybe I’m far enough along that it was able to hold up to it?
