A 44-year-old male asked:
Possible rupture: Patients who suffer achilles ruptures often report feeling hit or kicked in the area and then realizing no one is around them. I recommend you see an orthopedist for an evaluation and recommendations as soon as possible.
A 24-year-old female asked:
Not uncommon : Unfortunately, bunion surgery can be painful. Usually the postop pain can be controlled with several modalities (ankle block, medication, ice, elevation, immobilization, limited or no weightbearing, etc). Contact your surgeon for recommendations.
A 32-year-old member asked:
Xray, symptoms: There are many types of ankle fractures. Minor fractures do not usually need follow up x-rays while other fractures do. Healing of an ankle fracture can be determined with or without x-rays and by signs/symptoms (swelling, bruising, stability, motion, pain, etc). Follow up with your healthcare professional for exam and recommendations.
