Trimalleolar Fracture without surgery

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all, I have a trimalleolar ankle fracture with minimal displacement. The ortho doc recommended surgery, but I don't have insurance. He considered it reasonable to cast it for this first two weeks and then re-evaluate. Has anyone had a similar break and healed without surgery? What was your experience? Thank you!
