Hi I broke my fibula and had an orif surgery in my ankle 4weeks ago I m in a non weight bearing cast tonight my crutches slipped I saved myself by putting weight on my ankle I m worried I may have done damage what should I do I only have 2 more weeks then my cast comes off then I should hopefully have a walking boot
Hi.Thanks for writing on HCM. Broken fibula is managed conservatively by analgesics and anti-inflammatory drugs.This does not require any surgical intervention and it heals by itself.Hope this answers your query.Get well soon.
