Just fell off the new walker - worried

I went too fast turning and fell - landed on my side and the walker fell on my
ankle, gulp! I was getting way too confident about what I can do. 9 days
pre-op. Did I damage, dislodge anything? I had a TAR and a subtalar fusion
with bone graft. So mad at myself!

Re: Just fell off the knew walker - worried

Do you have additional pain or swelling? I would call the doctor to let him know what happened. He can decide if he needs to see you. Keep us posted

Hmmm my first reaction was to take Percoset and ice it. I guess I'll call the doctor tomorrow.
