Re: Sprained ankle 11 weeks ago....

Yes definitely go back to the doctor. Is your current doctor a foot /ankle OS? If not, you need to make an appt with a foot/ankle OS (not a general one). It does sound like your peroneal tendons which are injured usually during a traumatic twisting injury you described. I just had my peroneal tendon tear repaired along with a bunch of other stuff this past Feb. A lot of times peroneal tendon injuries are often missed or misdiagnosed as an ankle sprain and while they typically tear during ankle sprains, they are a separate injury. Please go back and gt it checked out so you don't further injure it! Good luck and let me know what the doctor says!
