Can You Put Weight On A Broken Ankle
Hello: I was a broken ankle bone, specifically in the talus before 90 days now can I put my body weight and I walk on the ground, what do you think?
Physical Restrctions: The answer to this question much come from your orthopedic physician as he know the severity of the injury and the healing process.
Eat less: You need to rest and let the fracture heal completely.
Probably: The cast is to stabilize and position the ankle in a proper position for healing. It also keeps you from re-injuring it. It does not eliminate the pain. Your pain should be managed by your treating physician - either with narcotic analgesics or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaid's).
Not always: If you have severe swelling they may wait 24-48 hours to put on a cast.

Follow-up: Continued pain after a broken ankle is common, often another procedure is necessary. See your surgeon for new x-rays and an exam.
Broken ankle heard it go pop then no pain. Is this bad the docs are waiting for my bone to set to put a cst on. Did it set in place or break more??
Sorry difficult to: Understand your exact question, but if you have a broken bone, you will have to go see your orthopaedic surgeon, and make sure you are compliant with any recommended treatment (s), including weightbearing recommendations, etc. If you have any questions with the treatment recommendation (which varies depending on fracture type), make sure to ask your orthopaedic surgeon before leaving his/her office

I am 1 year post op for removing a screw that was put in for a broken ankle, and I still have pain when I walk for a long time. Can therapy help?
Possibly: If the initial ankle injury involved the joint surface, pain can persist for a long time. Anytime a joint is involved in injury it is possible for post traumatic arthritis to set in. If no joint involvement then stability and functional issues can create pain, both of which are improved with physical therapy. Bracing and orthotics can provide functional stability and pain reduction also.

Depends on type: Some ankle fractures require surgery and some can be treated by immobilization. Factors that guide the treatment opinion of your doctor include: location, type of fracture (some are more stable and others very unstable), injury force, whether the fracture is open or closed, personal medical history and health, and many more. Talk to your doctor to understand the plan.See 2 more doctor answers
