Fracture ankle: Need to recall if painful bump on foot has been there since the ankle fracture. It may be a secondary consequence of using the walker boot. Sometimes we change the area on our foot where we bear weight when we r healing an ankle fracture.. Subsequently it results in production of a painful area which may feel very firm.. It will usually resolve as the fracture heals and your gait improves.
