Possible talar dome fracture/fibula fracture. :C
So, yep. This is continued from the other topic, because it just got... Too messy, I guess, and I didn't want to bump it up almost a month later, in fear that it would confuse people.
If I'm doubling posting and not supposed to, sorry! :C
But onto what I mean in the title.
My mum and I were looking for some kind of answer for my ankle. It's been 2 months and 2 days since I "sprained" my ankle and it's really NOT any better. The swelling has gone down, but the bruising is still there. Whenever I walk, I get a SHARP pain on the inside of my ankle and going up the outside of my ankle through my leg.
I read just last night that if you sprain your ankle there should be no bone tenderness... Well, lemme tell you. Bone tenderness times about 12 from when I broke my elbow. It wasn't even a full break, it was a.. Compression break... Or something :C I don't remember. But pushing anywhere on my forearm would hurt REALLY bad. Still whenever you push on the fibula part of my ankle/leg, it's really tender.
I'm switching my primary doctor from my town to a city about an hour or so away. They have AMAZING health care and doctors. Hopefully we can get something done here...
I'm failing my gym class because I can't do anything. It's horrible to even try and walk, but I make do because I don't have any other choice. I'm probably messing up by not using crutches, but I can't handle crutches and school for 8 hours a day. Good news is, school gets out on Wednesday, the 6th.
When I flex my leg the best I can, the fibula bone pops out from the skin... The other (uninjured) side doesn't do that. I can move my ankle much farther than I can with the uninjured one, but it hurts like a betch...
Also, not sure if I posted this in the other one, but when I stand on the bad ankle, it rolls in when I stand on it. The other side stands up straight.
Then, today, I read that too much swelling can block out clear xrays. (If one of you posted that on the last post, I'm sorry! I haven't really read back over it.) I also read that it's harder to see a bone cracked through the middle rather than clear across the outside... If that makes any sense? And you probably won't see a talar dome break...
I'm guessing that these are possible due to the pain placement, my ROM, and the AMOUNT of pain.
I need to see an ortho pretty badly. What I really need is a boot, which I haven't had one... At ALL.
Any suggestions? :C
