I've been a cast for 11 weeks now. I have a spiral fracture on my left fibula. 3 weeks ago, I had xrays and my doc discovered that my fracture was actually worse than before! a little background: I have autoimmune hypoparathyroidism which means that I don't have pth which is key in building bone.
The last several days I've had severe pain in my ankle that radiates to my Achilles tendon and up my calf. I talked to the PA and she recommended waiting a couple of days.
my next appointment it's April 24...3 weeks away. this will mean that I've been in a cast for almost 15 weeks!
Is this normal and what can be done about my problem of not growing bone?
I'm so tired of being in so much pain and this cast!
