Broken Tibia on right ankle. Ankle reduction 2 weeks ago, no improvement in new X-ray. What should I do?

Relax! Don't do it.: Even with a spectacular reduction of the fracture, two weeks is hardly enough time judge improvement. A lot of bone absorption followed by bone deposition has to occur. Sometimes early x-rays may look like the healing has stalled or even reversed. Be patient and let your body do it's stuff. ...Read more

Agree if rest, ice, immobilization iwth strapping/ brace and antiinflammatory meds don't help, get evaluated and possible advanced imaging (mri). Best of luck. ...Read more

Did X ray on L ankle. It's written on the film "weight bearing", but I was putting all my weight on R leg, not left. Does X ray need to be retaken?

Maybe: Depends on your injury. Many times weight-bearing films can be helpful, but not always necessary. There are subtle findings in non-weight-bearing films that can indicate instability without requiring a weight-bearing film. Also, there is some question how accurate these films are because most people, like yourself, don't put full weight down secondary to pain. ...Read more
