4 weeks after cast removed, ankle still swollen?

Hi all, I just have a question. I had a stress fracture of my heel this summer and did 6 weeks NWB. I had my cast removed on Aug. 1st. I wore my CAM walker for 2 weeks and now am in nothing. I am having very minimal pain and actually feel great, but my question is why is my ankle swollen? It is puffy and both the outside and inside.It was never swollen before the cast. At first I believed it was due to walking on it after no walking, but after 4 weeks?? Hoping someone has some personal experience or ideas. Thanks a bunch -Jaci

Re: 4 weeks after cast removed, ankle still swollen?

Hi,
I have a torn ligament and a chipped bone from the end of the fibula. The doc tried a conservative approach first...cast for two weeks followed by boot for 4 weeks. This conservative approach did not work and I probably need surgery. My foot was not swollen before he put me in the cast/boot However, it's been 4 or 5 weeks since I've been out of a cast/boot and my foot and ankle are swollen whereas they were not before!! I, too, wonder why this is so....and I haven't even had the surgery yet!!!!!!
