On 19th January my dog came running up and didn't stop! The result was a spiral fibula fracture and severe tissue damage to the ankle and top of my foot. I was in plaster for 2 weeks and then given an an airboot. He said expected to see me at the next appt in 6 weeks time walking without crutches. 4 weeks later I was still in a lot of pain when putting weight on the foot that I went back to the consultant . .He took another x-ray and said the fracture had healed and I had severe soft tissue damage which woud take another 6 weeks to heal. It's now 2 weeks later, my ankle is still very swollen and I am still suffering the same degree of pain as I was a month ago whilst trying t walk. I am unable to go out as can't walk and have now been housebound for 2 months. My question is - should I still be in so much pain, what should I be doing or not doing to help it heal or should I go back to the consultant? I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has had a similar problem.
