Hi! I broke my ankle about a week ago. The doctor wrote a report after i got my x-ray and CT-scanning results Comminuted distal right fibular fracture. Several small presumed fracture fragments are in the lateral ankle mortise. Avulsive-type fracture of the distal medial malleolus. Minimally displaced fracture He said that he recommends a surgery with screws to fix the displaced fibula bone and to take those small fractured pieces out of ankle mortise. I have read a lot of different reviews about that surgery and post operation healing. And i am concerned if its better to do it in my situation or not. My leg feels alright. i had it swollen the first few days after the injury, now its a little swollen just in ankle area. I don`t feel pain even when i move and it wasn t that painful since the beginning. I can move my fingers, touch my leg, rotate my foot and press it up with a little discomfort but no significant pain. I can not and don t really try to step on it thou. I just want another professional opinion that will help me make up my mind Here`re few links with X-Rays Thank you!

3 days ago I fractured my distal fibula and they put a boot on my foot and gave me crutches. I see an orthopedic dr tomorrow. My concern is that the top of my foot & toes is numb & my inside ankle is really swollen and the pain is excruciating. I keep it elevated, don t put any pressure on it, ice it and take alot of advil & it continues to get bigger & bigger and more painful every day. Do you think I may need surgery?
