Except for one of you mentioning being stretchered off a mountain-I imagine in excruciating pain-then air-lifted to the hospital, there has been nothing said about that problematic trip from the location where you suffered the insult to your ankle to your first medical evaluation.
I live in Southern CA next to the beach. Slipped on a wet (sprinkler) patch on stairs leading down to beach. Between the Lab I was taking down to exercise and the railing I was spared a long, possibly fatal fall, but managed to do something
wickedly painful to my left ankle.
Fortunately had my cell phone with me and called my son to bring me an old pair of crutches because I was unable to tolerate bearing weight on my injured foot/ankle. The trip into my building and up to the second floor-thankfully by elevator- was somehow managed, and I haven't left the apt since-10 days ago'
I think there's some slight lessening of the pain and a little less swelling. Doing RICE daily.
Did most of you go to the ER, Urgent Care or your primary physician at first ? And how did you manage the very real level of pain so you could stand the trip!?
