Welcome to just answer.
I am sorry to hear of your discomfort
PLease enter the chat
Have you had any other investigations apart from the X ray ?
Have you had a repeat X ray after the initial ones ?
I have gone through the question you have posted .
As the pain is persistent and you have not been able to get much relief you may need a repeat of the investigations .
An X ray will serve as a comparison to the previous X ray and also help know if the fracture has healed .
At times there may be a soft tissue injury to the ligaments or the muscles and this can not be seen on an X ray and requires a scan like a MRI .
So these are the options that need to be considered .
As for the pain relief anti inflammatory medications and physical therapy do help .
Thus these are the points that need to be kept in mind when we are dealing with a case like yours .
That is the right step as it will help us get to the root of the problem
The physical therapist will help relieve the pain as well .
Please do take anti inflammatory medications as well .
Yes this could be the bony fragment or the soft tissue causing the pain
The physical therapist will help ease out the pain .
So please follow in this direction and this will help you feel better .
I hope you are getting my point ?
If you tolerate ibuprofen better then you should stick to it as it serves the purpose .
Yes , infact a MRI is the ideal investigation to diagnose a ruptured ligament .
So please go ahead as planned as that is the right approach .
