Brief Answer:
Minor stress fractures due to osteoporosis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen the attached reports. The X-ray of ankle shows minor stress fractures in the lower end of fibula due to osteoporosis. An MRI scan of the ankle will help in further confirmation of diagnosis. Meanwhile you need to start with regular calcium and vitamin D3 supplements and avoid any stressful activities that aggravate the pain and swelling. Keeping the foot elevated on a pillow while resting will help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Brief Answer:
Details below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
I have seen the attached prescription. It contains only pain killer, medicine to help gastritis and multivitamin. You need calcium supplements like Corcium C once a day and get an MRI scan done to see the bone damage. An ankle brace may be needed to allow the fractures to heal and for the swelling to subside.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.
