Broken/Chipped fibula/ankle


I broke my ankle about 7 weeks ago also i chipped my bone. They put me in a walking boot because my Dr said it wasn't too bad. But now its been pretty long and my foot turns red when i stand up and it still kinda hurts i also still cant walk I don't have insurance so i cant just cant just go for a check up. I was wondering if anyone had something like this happen what should I do?

Re: Broken/Chipped fibula/ankle


I fractured fibula about same time you did and have a similar diagnosis--doc says tip of bone detached. I am not healing as expected and now doc says that we may have to do arthroscopic ligament surgery because ligament pull on bone is preventing reattachment. I don't have insurance either but surgery center will allow payment plan and so will doc I bet.

Sounds like you may not be healing correctly as well. I suggest you go back to doctor to get treatment whatever that may be. Since you can't afford it ask for a payment plan. With so many uninsured payment plans are the standard these days. But whatever you do don't ignore your problem or it may get worse. Good luck!
