I factured my left lateral malleolus July 7th. Twisted my ankle, walked into a ditch bare footed, and twisted, and rolled my ankle. It did not bruise right away, so I thought I just twisted it real bad. Three days later it bruised up, so I went to the er in my town, and took an xray, and have a lateral malleolus fracture. They put me in a boot and said it is like walking on air. Well, 3 weeks later went for an xray, no change, not healing. I borrowed a scooter and stayed in the house, with very little on my feet, for the next 4 weeks. Went for another xray, they said very little change. So I am thinking, surely the next 4 week off my feet, should be healed. Went for an xray Monday, which is 3 months after the accident, no change! With the insurance I have my dr. could not find an orthopedic dr. that would take my ins. Needless to say I am beside myself, thinking I have to live with a lateral malleolus fracture. My be able to get an appointment in about 100 miles from here. Just had a break down, do not know what to do if I do not get an ortho appointment.
P.S. I know there is someone worst off than me, and that is what keeps me going.
