Just when I think I'm an expert on broken ankle and know what to expect, I get more confused! I went to the ortho today to have the post op splint removed, staples out, and a cast put on. After the staples were removed (which was a lot better than stitches last time!) I noticed this huge red thing right on too if where my incision was!!! The dr said it was a fracture blister. Said its common. He didnt do anything to it, he just applied a cast and sent me on my way for 4 weeks.
Does ANYBODY have experience with this??? What can I expect at the next appointment?? I'm beyond terrified of having to have this drained. OUCH! Any input appreciated!!
As for now, adjusting to a cast which is wayyy more comfy than that splint.
