Customer Question
I'm having real pain...

I'm having real pain putting weight on my foot and am using a crutch right now to move around. I injured my ankle a few months back and it took a long time to get right. My foot seemed to move over on the inside. Is this problem lightly to be caused by weak ankles which I have been told I have by my physio? (Should mention have had three knee replacements in total, now working well but knee is beginning to hurt I think because I am walking with difficulty) Are ankle strengthening exercises initially the forward? Tks

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

No heat, no swelling at all. I can feel it when I sit but it is the standing - ouch!

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Probably not related to this. Aged sixty years, otherwise healthy. Have maintained a long term habit of regular cycling for many years though this winter for the first time this has become somewhat less. ( I live in the Netherlands)

how old are you ?

how did you injure your ankle?

did you see a doctor after you injured your ankle?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
