You certainly could: as everything is a little weaker while healing from surgery. You need to get ice on it, get it up, put a firm bandage around it and see a doctor (ideally your surgeon) soon to see what's going on and what can be done. Good luck! ...Read more

Re-evaluate: Worsening symptoms after the initial evaluation require a second look.

See your doctor or an orthopedic specialist for appropriate evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

3 months ago I hurt my ankle hospital said it was sprained ever since my ankle keeps clicking once I move it up and down around the bone of ankle?

Cartilage, fluid etc: Clicking can come from a variety of sources including a cartilage injury on the top of the talus or bottom of the tibia; fluid shifts in or around the joint; a loose body (bone or cartilage) or enlarged soft tissue from the injury. If the clicking is painful or associated with swelling, then it's time to see an orthopedic doctor. If no pain or swelling, then observation is all that is required. ...Read more

Fell over 2 weeks ago and could hardly walk on my ankle for the two days after. My ankle is still bruised and swollen. Have I chipped a bone?

Possibly: It is possible that you have chipped or fractured a bone. Prolonged swelling and pain after a fall could indicate that you injured the bone. see your doctor and when they examine your ankle they will be able to get a better sense if the bone is damaged. They may want to get an xray. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Inflammation,: After an usual form of exercise, joints can become inflamed. This can happen when we engage in activities that use our muscles and joints in ways that we don't normally use them. Rest, ibuprofen or tylenol, (acetaminophen) ice or heat, is a reasonable plan for now. If you have significant swelling, or fever, or your knee gives way, see somebody as soon as possible. Regular skating when better, can prevent this ...Read more

Avoid cutting sports: Avoid cutting sports after an ankle sprain until all tenderness to palpation by you or a healthcare provider is noted. The injured/torn ligaments can take upwards of 4-6 weeks to heal sufficiently to allow for safe return to athletic activities that require rapid changes of direction (cutting), accelerating and decelerating. You likely did reinjure your ankle. Seek re-evaluation by your physician. ...Read more

I hurt my knee almost 5 years ago and I felt like pins and needles shot up to my knee and doctors keep saying it's just a sprain but it still hurts ?

Its time for a Mri: Chronic knee pain implies a structural problem. Plain weight bearing xrays can evaluate joint line space, patellar tilt. An MRI can evaluate for a meniscus or cartilage injury which sounds more likely. A sports or PMR MR can help look for other causes and complete treatment. PT and core conditioning are likely to be recommended. ...Read more
