Swelling: Fibula fracture

It varies according to the severity of the soft tissue injury. I tell my patients that their ankle will still be swollen with activity for many months. After surgery on my own fibula my ankle was swollen for nearly a year whenever I did any exercise. If swelling is painless or at most, slightly uncomfortable, it is rarely necessary to worry about it. I recommend (and used) compression stockings for symptom relief. If late swelling is painful or if it hasn't been swelling then starts up, you should report to your doctor.

I broke my fibula and dislocated my ankle March 31, 2002. I had problems with swelling and tried a compression stocking...knee high. I was AMAZED at the difference! Not only is the swelling less, the pains and itching are less. I recommend trying it!
