Hi I have strained my ankle, and broken a 3mm tip of my medial malleolus, the brake is so small that my doctors have said that we should treat the foot at it were severe strained, here is my question; the injurie is six days old, and I wanted to know if I were to take a small bike ride alongside of my son so it s kinda slow. 8 - 9 mph so that I can take him to his kindergarden. I have compression on the ankle. pardon my english but i m from Denmark

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
As you have described that there is a fracture of medial malleolus along with ankle sprain, the ideal treatment is to apply a below-knee cast for at least a period of 1 month. You can request your to apply weight bearing cast, in which you can walk around & drive a car
take care

i have been at a orthopedician who said that we should treat it as an badly strained ankle because the fracture only is at the very tip of the medial malleolus. Thinking just about that; is it safe to take an bicycle ride with my son?
