If you don't want to read all that: I sprained my ankle in April, it never healed right, I went to the ortho.
So I went to see the ortho today, and I feel like I had a pretty comprehensive exam. He watched me walk, he looked at my ankle, tested my ROM and strength, the whole 9 yards.
He said it was obvious that I re-injured my ATFL, so he put me in a boot for at least the next 3 weeks which realyl sucks, but oh well. I see him again in 3 weeks, and hopefully we see some healing! He did scare me a bit though when he said "hopefully we can fix this without surgery." I can't do another ankle surgery! One, surgery sucks, and 2, I need to be working, I can't be off my feet for as long as that would take. So let's hope and pray that being in the boot and having that immobilization works!! Oh, and it's a fancy boot -- one of those grey Aircast boots that come apart and have those air chambers. Never been in one of these before...they look space like lol
