Anyone ever broken an ankle?
I have an oblique fracture of the distal portion of the fibula. Had a bad reaction to new high blood pressure medication - passed out, smacked my head on floor and broke my ankle.
Just wondering how long before it starts to feeling better? Did this last Saturday morning. Went to urgent care doctor, regular doctor and orthopedic surgeon and I'm in a large boot. Still hurts like mad. Can't be up for anytime at all before the swelling takes over and becomes very painful. See orthopedic doctor again on Tuesday for another x-ray and advice.
Some people cannot take over the counter drugs
I know I cannot take the traditional Aleve etc. as I am on blood thinners. So I am out of luck when it comes to swelling....ice is my buddy.
