I fell off my deck, stuck a foot out so I wouldn't land on my back and ended up on my butt, with an extremely sore ankle. I kinda had to look to figure out if it was just a twist or worse. I saw my ankle out of place with a huge lump on top of it and swelling like I couildnt believe!
Figured pretty quick it was more than a twist, so butt walked myself back inside and got help. From there tho I didn't want to see! Especially after they told me how many breaks & how complicated they were.
I didn't look at xrays until I was on the operating table. Had no choice there as they were huge and displayed everywhere. That was kinda cool, but b4 that the pain was so bad I didn't need to add any visuals to my brain.
Not sure if it helped me, but my imagination is vivid enough!
