Greetings Scott.I am Dr. Phophalia and would assist you today.Are you concerned that present pain may be due to fracture and caused by walking?Is it possible for you to attach the x-ray here? You can do that by clicking the paper clip icon.Thanks for using JustAnswer.
I tried uploading picture, the site wouldn't let me. The pain is very localized a few inches away from where I believe the fracture to be. After the pain subsides, I can put pressure on the site without causing pain, they a few minutes later the pain comes back... like an icepick being stuck in my Tibia. The bone that is fractured is the fibula right over the ankle
Here is a link to the fracture image
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using JustAnswer.
No real swelling, last night took aleve and ibuprofen. Both my wife and stepdaughter mentioned circulation. I've loosened up the boot quite a bit. How tight does the boot need to be when I'm sleeping? I see the orthopedic surgeon Wednesday when I will ask a lot of the same questions.
Am I okay loosening the boot?
Thank you. I appreciate your efforts. I can't imagine diagnosing long distance via type is easy.
