I Break My Fibula So I Have A Walking Cast And Friday The Doctor Re Going To Get Off So I Want To Know If I Can Walk Normal
I break my fibula so I have a walking cast and friday the doctor re going to get off so I want to know if I can walk normal?
In time: Assuming the break was clean and that healing is complete, you should be able to gradually get back to a normal walking pattern. Your muscles and joints will be stiff but will stretch back out with walking and returning to your day-to-day activities. If you are having difficulty, a short course of physical therapy may get you back on track. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi if i fractured my fibula in my ankle would I get a moon boot or a cast where i cant walk for 6-8weeks?
I had 4 metatarsals fractured, I wore a cast 4 weeks. Now its removed and the doctor told its healed. Is it normal I have pain, so cant walk properly?
Not So Fast: Four fractured metatarsals may need more time to be titled healed. Of course, not knowing the severity of the fractures, certainly makes the idea of more time debatable. I would think a couple more weeks in a removable cast walker would ease the transition wearing a cast to regular ambulation. You might call the physician and inquire about the possibility of using one. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Found small lump below inside of ankle. Painful to walk and hurts during rest. Doc ordered MRI to rule out tpd or mass. Could i end up in a cast?
Depends on results: Depends on the results of mri. With tibialis posterior dysfunction, immobilization may not be enough, surgery may be necessary and then casting. Plus there will be a need to address the flat footed ness. If a mass consistent with a ganglion, have it drained as an in office service. Ask if they can remove it, as an in office service if not successful. If other mass, have removed. ...Read more
I'm a heavy smoker with an ankle fracture. It's been 6 weeks now with cast and doc advised another 2 weeks, it's undisplaced so when can I walk fully?
3 weeks since simple broken fibula and sprain. When i walk with airboot i still get a sharp pain in outer and inner ankle. Still throbs. Normal?
Yes: It is common to have pain for several weeks after an ankle sprain and can even persist for a few months in some cases. However, it depends on the level of pain, the frequency and severity to determine what to do next. If it is infrequent and short duration, that is to be expected. If it is frequent, severe and lasts a long time i recommend you return to your doctor for evaluation. ...Read more

I just got out in an air cast after 5 weeks non weight bearing. I was given allowance to walk, when I try I get a shock wave and pain. Is this normal?
Ortho knows best: i am assuming you sustained some kind of fracture. The ortho md probably saw the last xray films and noticed that you had proper callus formation so he changes the weight bearing status. It might feel uncomfortable at first but it should get better with time. Consider going for some physical therapy also if possible and dont forget to consider ICE, and/or NSAID as part of treatment. ...Read more

After I get my cast of for grade 3 ankle sprain will I just be able to walk normally without any other bracing? Cast on for 2-3 weeks
Perhaps not: After 3 weeks in a cast your ankle will be stiff and may take a few days to move well. It takes 6 weeks to get 90% strength to your healing ligaments, longer if you have nicotine or anti-inflammatory medications in your blood. Relatively flat shoes, and may need a brace. www.blatmanhealthandwellness.com ...Read more
