My feet cramp up real bad almost in half, midway thru a step my right foot cramped up and when i put my foot down my foot just rolled. Went to the ER and after xrays the Dr states i had a really ugly area on my ankle but the Radiologist said possible hairline fracture, the Dr told me he was in disagreement but put me in a aircast ( he felt more was injured) and told me to wear it 7 days after 7 days if i still had pain or issues I needed to get another x-ray. I waited 2 1/2 weeks before getting a x=ray at a after hours urgent care facility that is connected to a mini hospital. The doc came in and said she pulled up my xrays from the hospital and thought i was going to end up needing a mri to look for tissue damage but was going to do xrays as a precaution
Imagine my surprise when the doc pulls up a chair next to her computer and asked me to come have a seat. Clear as day on the xray it showed 2 broken bones, bone chip and tendons that were ripped from the bone.. At 8 am i receive a call from a orthopedic surgeon stating I needed to be seen today. Ok this freaks me out. If i require surgery i am fired from my job, no FLMA left due to lower back surgery within the year. I can deal with a cast but not surgery. My body has been thru enough. 8 surgeries on my spine and Im done. Anyone else had this type of injury and what were the results. I cant stand the suspense between now and my appt this afternoon. Avulsion fracture of lateral malleolus, left closed with malunion., bone chip along with torn tendon from the bone.
