Fresh fibula fracture and searching around for what to expect. Orthopedist appt is tomorrow and I'm anxious to get on road to recovery.
Highlights from the x-ray report but leaving a lot out. How bad is this?
-Acute Oblique/spiral fracture through distal shaft extending to the level of the syndesmosis.
-There is widening of the lateral ankle mortise space suggesting possible ligamentous injury.
-Multiple osseous densities with no apparent donor site.
I was mountain biking and lost control, basically riding into the side-hill which pinned my foot between moving ground and the bike and pushed my foot out and toes up. Basically the opposite of a classic ankle roll.
I felt it break under what I think was compression, hoping this is better for ligaments?
I don't know, I'm just looking for some positive info and wishing I could wind the clock back.
