I broke my ankle on 11/30. It was a straight brake on the bottom of the fibula and a hairline fracture. The bones did not displays and I did not need surgery. I was put in a cast for six weeks and got the cast off seven days ago. I was told I could go full weight-bearing and no crutches needed. I was not given any restrictions. I was told that the swelling would go down the more I walked on it. The problem I’m having is every time I take a step I have pain from the arch to the toes. It’s like all the ligaments hurt. It’s a stabbing kind of pain. The top of my foot is still tender to the touch as well feels like a big black and blue even though it looks fine. I asked if I should wear sneakers flats or go barefoot and I was told to do whatever is comfortable for me. I thought that by walking barefoot this would help exercise my weekend tendons and ligaments. It’s the seventh day and when it comes close to night time or barefoot I can barely shuffle along and I’m limping a lot. I thought that it would be much better by now. I’m wondering if this is normal or if it could be plantar fasciitis. I start physical therapy on Wednesday. I just want to get better and I thought I would be a lot better by now.
