 ORIF after 3 months!
ReneeT    4:36pm Feb 2 2019

I am super frustrated! I broke my ankle on November 11th. ER doc thought it would need surgery. When I saw the ortho doc he felt it had a good chance of healing on its own. I was put in a cast, non weight bearing for 8 weeks. At 8 weeks still no healing. Cast was taken off and I was given a boot. Doc told me to walk on it, as this would stress the bone and should stimulate bone growth. I questioned walking on my broken ankle and got a second opinion. They told me the same thing. So I started to walk on it a bit, mostly just around the house. I went back in 3 weeks for an X-ray only to find the bone had completely moved out of place. Surgery is now necessary. So on February 11th I am scheduled for ORIF as well as a bone graft, with the bone being harvested from my heal. So exactly 3 months out, I am starting over at square one.
