7 weeks ago i fell and the bone on my left leg developed a crack just slighlt above the ankle. when i went to the hospital the doctor put a cast on my leg and i was to to have it for 6 weeks . last week i clocked 6 weeks and i went back to the hospital the cast was removed but since the my leg hasnt stoped swelling its getting biger and biger . waht could be the problem
Six weeks cast after minor or hairline crack is sufficient for healing the fracture.Swelling after removal of cast is generally unusual. as your limb`s swelling is increasing .you must get the X-ray repeated ,keep the limb elevated & do movements of toes regularly.If X-ray shows any thing ,consult the orthosurgeon again.
