Please get a repeat X ray done. Your symptoms are suggestive of Fracture may be hairline which was not detected in your previous x ray.In the mean time avoid pressure on that particular foot and apply hot water bags for the swelling to reduce..
Hope this helps.

For the past few days my left foot/ankle have been swollen, does go down a bit, after sleeping all night. I am going to be seeing a surgeon about my gallbladder, as it is diseased. Would that have anything to do with the swelling of my left foot/ankle?

A 5 6 , 210 lb., 64-year-old male business executive had a physical exam prior to his retirement from corporate work. His blood pressure was 180/115 on three separate days. Further examination showed normal to low plasma renin activity, elevated total peripheral resistance (TPR), cardiac output (CO) of 7.2 L/min, x-ray evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages, and mild polyuria. Recommended therapy was weight reduction to his ideal level, a low-salt diet ( 2 gm/day sodium), prudent exercise, and a reduction in alcohol consumption ( 3 oz whiskey/day). This change in lifestyle did little to change the condition. Medication was initiated in the form of an oral diuretic and progressed to a beta-blocker; eventually a vasodilator was included to reduce the blood pressure to 140/90. 1. What is the diagnosis for this individual?

I have had blood work, MRI, X-ray which doctors claim cannot substantiate what I am feeling. This all began out of blue 3 years ago July, and headaches were the first symptom. It has progressed since then. Any ideas?? Thanking you in advance

My dad broke his femur a couple of weeks ago (he s hospitalized oversees), the surgeon did not want to operate probptly because he was taking blood thinners. After 4 days, he did the surgery. His doctor installed a rod in his leg. 3 days later, my dad started to run high fevers (102.2). his doctors cultured his blood, urine, stool, took an x-ray of his lungs, x-ray of his wound. Nothing is shown. Not sure what they tested him for. After the fever was notices, his doctors has been giving him antibiatics to try to remedy the problem. Nothing is working. yesterday, his doctor seem puss coming out of the wound. The doctor said that he s never experienced puss that looks like the one my dad has. Any thoughts/advise will be greatly appreciated

Had surgery on right long finger @ dip joint to reduce osteoarthritis pain. Earlier procedure on left index finger was successful (bones fused). This time bones did not fuse so a bone graft was done. Follow-up x-ray showed bone was a casualty of infection. At no time was the infection visible or painful. Third procedure was done to take out pins, debride area, and take samples for culturing. Results showed staph (not mrsa) infection and fungal infection. Immediately went on fuconazole by mouth and cefazolin infusion. Infections are gone but so is the pin that supported tip of finger. Tip of finger is unstable and requires a splint most of the time. On three-week hiatus. What are options aside from amputation?
