 Lateral Malleolus Fracture
Shawn D    5:33pm Jul 30 2019

So June 25th I rolled my ankle and ended up with a lateral malleolus fracture. Great right? So a couple days later I had a couple screws installed, in a slab for 2 weeks. Now on to a fiberglass slab that I can remove to shower, while watching tv etc. A couple more weeks and I head back for my next appointment.

Question for all you experienced bone breakers tho. 25 days after surgery I ended up falling down the stairs. Only a couple steps and I bailed. Felt myself falling, threw the crutches and jumped from my non injured leg and onto my non injured side in the grass. I called the doctors office and the receptionist didn't seem concerned at all. Said if there is more pain or swelling to call back.

Any opinion on this? Everything feels good. I'm still staying off the ankle as ordered but am so tempted... Lol
