 Waiting to see orthopedic dr
MDinpaintimes2    7:41am Jan 12 2019

Hi - I broke my ankle in 3 places Wednesday night. About 10 years ago I broke my fibula and had to have surgery. Had a plate and 7 screws put in in the same leg. Four years later, I had the hardware removed.

The break this time is in the same place, plus 2 other fractures - 1 on the inside of my ankle and the other at the back. Went to the ER and they bandaged me up with a splint and phone numbers to set up an appointment with an orthopedic dr. Iíve tried to get an appointment, but the soonest I can get in is Wednesday - a week after the injury. Iím in pain and now getting worried that itís a long time before Iíll be seen. No help from the ER when I called back. They refused to talk with me over the phone, which I get but itís frustrating. :(

Is this ok to have to wait so long? At this point itís the weekend so I have to wait until Monday to do any more calls anyway. Deep sigh. Thanks in advance for any thoughts/advice.
