4 months ago i broke malleoli in my ankle, was 1 week in plaster splint and 2 months in crutches and boot
never fully recovered and yesterday i crushed the same foot with a big rock
shocking pains, i feels bones moving inside the foot, the leg was splinted and given painkillers. when i rest it's ok but every movement is painful and swelling is huge. symptoms are worse than forthe old ankle break.
today i saw the doctor, he closed the splint with better bandages and this helped a bit. also suggested to see the ankle specialist.
he said too much swelling at the moment and the trauma is on the ankle joint.
is it possible i damaged my ankle if the rock fell on the foot? i broke the bone right under the ankle and i can feel it. so maybe ligaments can be damaged in the accident? i'm worried about the situation of my ankle since it was allready in bad shape.
is it normal that the treatment is delayed 10-15 days due to swelling? isn't a problem?
