Also ice the ankle when you get the swelling down and keep it elevated. ...Read more

It depends: Without seeing your x-rays. Often times these avulsions fractures are treated with early range of motion and a walking boot. However, each patient is different and I am sure your orthopaedic surgeon will be able to give you customized and individual treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Dependsthe severity: For talus fractures surgery is indicated if the fracture position is unstable or is affecting the subtalar joint. The result of the mri is important to evaluate the tendons around the fracture, if there is damage that can not be seen on plain X-ray and determine an AVN. The talus is one of a kind bone because it lacks of direct vascularity, so a precise diagnosis will avoid complications ...Read more

It takes about 6-8: weeks for bone to heal. If your a triathlete then I would not recommend you returning until this time elapses to ensure complete healing. Obviously you need to work closely to the doc you are seeing who will evaluate you clinically and radiographically. ...Read more

Depends: If the fracture is displaced it may need surgical fixation. If its not displaced then bracing for 6-8 weeks minimum and then return to rehab until fully healed. It can take several month to get full healing. Other options include possible platelet or stem cell based therapies that may help healing faster/more fully. Check out Regenexx.Com. ...Read more
