Link to previous thread for back story - https://patient.info/forums/discuss/lateral-malleolus-fracture-644867
I went to see the NHS GP today to get the result of my scan, as expected it was pretty normal. She mentioned that there was scarring on the bone but again that it was natural and nothing to worry about. Afterwards I discussed what were the next steps, she has signed me up for some Physio but on the NHS we know this can take months, in the mean time suggesting I look up some exercises and continue to use my Ankle Brace.
She also said that surgery was an option if Physio didn't work by inserting a metal plate into the ankle if the joint is unstable (which it seems it may be) but this would be a last resort as it means I wouldn't be able to move my ankle properly again.
My issue is now I have to wait months with again little idea what to do, my foot / ankle is getting more painful and it's getting very irritating. Any suggestions?
