On August 22nd I was walking outside and my left ankle gave out on me and it caused me to fall and when I fell I heard my ankle go snap, and then it turned black and blue and swollen up the size of a softball. I went to the doctor the next day and he told me that I tore the ligaments in my ankle and then 2 days later I started having severe pain in my whole foot day and night. After 4 weeks of suffering with the severe pain I went back to the doctor and ask to have a cast put on it and so the doctor put a walking cast on it and so I kept the cast on for 3 weeks and and pain stopped in the foot while the cast was on. When he removed the cast on September 16th much to my suprise my ankle was in the same shape as beore he put the cast on. And so now I am wearing a boot cast but it still hurts so much and I can't hardly put any weight on my ankle. Does anyone have any imput they can tell me about my ankle. Any information anyone can give me I will appreciate it very much. I am so tired of my ankle and foot hurting so much.
