Ser 4 Ankle Fracture
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

I had an ankle sprain 6 months back. It still pains if i standand walk for 5 minutes. The MRI reported torn talocalcanealligament with partial tear of post.Talofibular ligament. Whatshould i do?
See specialist.: It is not common to have tear of those ligaments. Typically if the posterior talofib is torn, the anterior talofib and calcaneaofib also torn. The talocalcaneal lig also hard to tear. This may mean very high level ankle sprain and a foot/ankle specialist is needed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Had arthroscopic ankle debridement & modified brostrom 7 wks ago. Feel pain in ankle when full weight bearing. Is this normal? How long?
Yes: 7 weeks is not that far out for foot and ankle surgery. Since you had surgery on something that you walk and bear weight on, pain, soreness, and swelling can occur for several months...sometimes even 6 months. Soreness is definitely to be expected at this point. I would say that any remaining sharp pain should begin to improve during the next few weeks. Also, make sure to see your surgeon too. ...Read more

Till what age does wrist circumference increase? 20, wrist size 6.7 inches,height 173 cm, ankle 8.9 inches.
Varies somewhat: The mechanism by which the circumference of the wrist increases includes the growth of the bones that make up the wrist, the joint spaces in the wrist, and also the soft tissues of the wrist as well. Bone growth in males can vary quite a bit anywhere usually between 14 and 21. Muscle and tendon size vary with use. Even elderly patients can have increase in wrist circumference due to arthritis. ...Read more
Xray: Both Hips AP, Frogleg. Results: Sclerotic lines both femoral heads. Symptoms: pain/clicking sound/limited range movement. Do i need new hip?
Unlikely: Doesn't sound like arthritis of significance, more likely may represent some degree of hip impingement. Slight bony prominence on femoral head, slightly excessive overhang of anterior hip socket or both. These bony abnormalities can lead to labral tearing and ultimately arthritis if left unchecked. Diagnosis requires additional xrays/MRI.Labral tears can be repaired and excess bone resected. ...Read more
