Hey everyone! 5 weeks ago I fractured my ankle hiking, it was nondisplaced and a posterior malleous fracture. No cast or surgery required as everything is lined up and stable amd was put in a walking boot amd NWB.
I just had my follow up to review xrays from my 4 week mark and they show no significant healing. I guess there is some healing but nothing crazy. This is my first time breaking bone and wondering if this is normal
I've been elevating almost constantly, swelling has gone down, bruising is easing and in no pain at all. Doctor mentioned that at 6 weeks we may see much more healing but I go back in for xrays next week for a 6 week scan.
Hopefully I'm freaking out over nothing and I ca get back on my feet soon.
