Fracture: You can experience pain in the ankle and back of calf if you are in a cast or a walking boot. I would speak to your doctor for further evaluation.
Dr. Payam Rafat
Podiatry 22 years experience
Need to be examined: Pain is normal up to several weeks or months after an injury. Usually with immobilization pain should be somewhat controlled. Rest and elevation will keep the swelling and pain at a minimum and possibly improve your symptoms, but calf main could be due to a blood clot that would need urgent attention and care.
Dr. Thomas Inwood
Podiatry 35 years experience
Avulsion: Pain is to be expected and diminishing as healing occurs. The pain in the calf could be a clot - see your podiatrist right away.

I would recommend seeing your md to help localize the source of your pain and to discuss treatment options. Treatment options for the above may include medication, injections, and physical therapy.

Caution advised: In the years I have been practicing I have yet to see anyone with significant lasting improvement after radio frequency ablation which is used to cauterize the small nerves supplying sensation to the spine. Assess the risks versus benefits carefully before deciding.

Consult physician: As you can imagine there are several causes for your symptoms, some severe and some not severe. But a physician needs to see you to question you about them and perform a physical examination. Test may/may not be ordered according to the physician's impression, but most of the time he/she will do. Good luck!
