I broke my ankle playing soccer, eversion motion, x-ray shows mildly displaced spiral fracture at lateral malleolus. Had cast for 8 weeks. dr said I can start walking even though x-ray still show the break, should I do? How long should take to heal?
When in doubt: Normally a "displaced" fracture of the distal fibula is surgically repaired. This is because the end of the fibula is needed for ankle joint stability. Your doctor may have felt the fracture did not require surgery, which is very possible. If there is some uncertainty on your part a second opinion is always available. ...Read more

Should be anytime: if it hurts that much to walk on a sprain, you may want to get further imaging studies done like X-Ray and MRI. There may be more damage than was thought originally. If its just a sprain, occasional protection for a few days on crutches might be OK. However don't go too long using that or the muscles will stiffen and you may start to atrophy. Take NSAIDs and ice the area around the clock. ...Read more

I broke my ankle 2 years ago and now if i stand to long both of my legs start to hurt it makes it hard for me to walk and when I do I have to walk so slow what could it be?
From the knees down my legs are swollen and hurt to walk. Took a 6 hr car trip, both ways this wknd. How long will it take to get back to normal?
Depends ...: First have to know what's causing your legs to swell like that. The cause could be cardiac, liver, kidney. You need a good workup by a good internist who will get a thorough history, a complete physical exam, a laboratory exam, maybe an EKG and CXR and when all the data is in have a long heart-to-heart with you on what's been found and why and what can and should be done about it. No blinders! ...Read more

How long will it take two leg fractures to heal? My 10 year old daughter fell out of her treehouse and suffered two fractures to her right leg. How long will it take for her to heal? Will these affect her ability to walk?
I : I am sorry to hear about your daughter's injury. Unfortunately, it is difficult to answer your question without knowing more about the injury. How severe were the fractures? Was it near or involving a joint? Was there any deformity of the leg? Did the bone puncture the skin? Does your daughter have any other medical conditions that might affect her healing? All of these will affect the healing rate of your daughter's leg. In general, i would estimate that the bones would start to "knit" in about 4-6 weeks and full strength may not be achieved for 3-6 months, but i would defer to your treating orthopedic surgeon who can give you more details about your daughter's specific injuries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Up to you: I usually tell my patients to get rid of the crutches when they feel their knee is strong enough to stand. Most people can walk on their knee right away with some assistance. A lot of patients actually feel better with walking after knee arthroscopy than before within the first 24-248 hours. In general i let my patients be weight-bearing as tolerated on their knees. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
6-12 weeks or more: Generally, bones heal in about 6-8 weeks. Depending on the severity of your ankle fracture (did it involve the fibula and the tibia or just the fibula?), and depending on the need for surgery, you may have a fair amount of swelling in the ankle, which could preclude wearing heals for much longer than 6-8 weeks. Swelling can take up to a year to improve, and may never fully resolve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
