First a little back story- I fractured my fibula with a dislocation and severed logaments playing roller derby at a tournament on June 23 (almost 4 weeks ago) My dr. told me to keep the air cast off as much as possible and to do my ankle excercises, which I have been doing.
So tonight I was making my way to the bathroom on my kneeling walker, with no cast on, and while rounding the corner my wheel hit a dog toy and the walker tried to topple me. My reaction was to put my bad foot down to stop myself from falling. I beared my full weight on my bad foot/ankle and I think I broke the sindesmatic screw. My ankle was fine for the first few hours, but now it’s sore, hot, itchy and swollen on the side. Has anyone else done this accidentally and so early in the game?? Should I go see the dr or just let it be and wear the cast more?
