Recover Oblique Fracture Aka Ankle
I have an oblique fracture of my right ankle. How do I go about taking care of my left foot? I am in crutches until i get a cast.
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
Was on cast nov 17, until dec 17 for a oblique fracture on tibia. Started running a month ago and my ankle still hurts as of this day. No therapy was required.. After running for 15 minutes it hurts.
See your surgeon: Again best option is to see your treating orthopedist... Your fracture undoubtedly healed but during casting and 'boot' or cam walker use your ankle was immobilized . You may be having pain because of ankle stiffness or because you began running too quickly or aggressively on bone that is not ready for it( disuse osteopenia can develop even in young adults after tibia fractures). See your ors. Gl! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I found out yesterday that I have an oblique fracture of the 4th toe. I am elevating and icing it. How long should I expect this intensity of pain?
Depends on your body: Bone takes approximately 6-8 weeks to heal in the average healthy individual. But as mentioned in other responses, the worst of the pain should subside before then. Rest, ice, proper compression and elevation should all help reduce your pain level. I would recommend speaking to your healthcare provider regarding anti-inflammatory or pain medication if the pain is severe. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

ORIF or not? X-ray: oblique fracture in distal fibula to outer corner of mortise joint w less than 3 mm displacement no effusion mortise seems intact
Depends: If it is really an isolated fibula fracture, they usually do not need surgery. Sometimes, however, the fibula fracture will be associated wth a complete tear of the deltoid ligament on the inside of the ankle. In that case, the talus will sometimes start to drift laterally and surgery is required to prevent post traumatic arthritis and instability in the ankle. Follow up with orthopedic surgeon ...Read more

Why would pt use 2lb ankle weight for strengthening leg of a senior recovering from fracture? Hurts knee?
Ankle weights: My answer is that i wouldn't do any exercise that hurts. Pain is a sign that your body doesn't like this. I would reduce the weight (to 1 pound, or even 1/2 a pound) till i found a level of weight which allowed me to do the exercise without pain. Do that for a while, then slowly increase the weight. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Talk to your doctor if this does not improve- sometimes physical therapy can be beneficial. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing.
