 Re: Pain after walking broken ankle
ayse    9:01am Oct 19 2019

Hey there! Sorry for your injury! I also have a broken fibula, no operation, no displacement like yours. After 5 weeks in a cast I got a walking boot. In that boot I put about 15 kg of weight on my leg following docs advise. I had no pain no swelling nothing. Then last week he told me to go up to 35 kg and then increase by 5 every 2 days. On Thursday with the excitement of it all I took a longish "walk" if it can be called that and next day I had all kinds of weird pains both overall but also around the fracture site as far as I could guess it. I was rather worried. Trying to figure out where the pain was really coming from etc. that whole day I took it easy. That was yesterday. Today the pains are gone. I feel fine and quite relieved. I think they were mainly the muscles which I worked too much. Also I had no pain while walking on it but rather afterwRds when I was resting.. I suppose if it were the broken bone it should hurt most when I actually put weight. Anyways I think it is normal to worry but the doc would also not tell you to walk on it were it not safe. I hope this relieves you a bit. I personally decided to put the weight the doc told me with no fear but not take half hour walks in this fashion in order to avoid future worrisome days.
