 Re: Did you look at your broken leg?

Yes, but I saw nothing fancy. Just a grapefruit sized ball of swelling.

Nothing was displaced in my case, so I guess notwithstanding the psychological torture of this recovery, it was a relatively “boring” fracture.


17 Feb - Nondispaces bimalleolar Fx from skiing accident. Larger fracture on medical side. Quite a big chunk. Placed in slab splint.
19 Feb - Ortho puts in short leg cast.
26 Feb - Cast removed, repeat X-rays to confirm no movement. X-rays look good, so another short leg cast and follow up in 3 weeks. NWB
19 Mar - Cast removed, repeat X-rays. Looks good, fracture line clearly visible but fainter than original 17 Feb x-ray. Given the option of short leg cast or boot. I chose boot. NWB, and must sleep in boot, but may remove for shower. Follow up in 3 weeks for eval for transition to PWB.
22 Mar - accidentally bore weight when crutch slipped out from under me. Repeat x-rays at urgent care. Radiologist didn’t even note lateral malleolar fracture (and I never could see it on X-ray). Said everything still looked good.
