Brief Answer: yes, consult the ortho doctor again Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX I am sorry about the accident. I have read your query thoroughly. A little pain is expected after removing the plaster, and it takes time for the fracture to heal completely. So, there will be some amount of limping for a month more. I am glad that you are able to walk now. Do not worry about the pain, it will subside soon. However, do not strain your ankle more. Do not walk too much or stand for long time. You can also consult your doctor again for a review check and prescription of pain killers. Get well soon.
