On Jan. 24, 2004 I fell on some ice and broke my ankle and foot. I have been diagnosed with a liz frank fracture. What kind of fracture is this? Also I broke my ankle on both sides on my right ankle. I have 2 screws in the inside of the ankle and a plate and 6-8 screws in the outside of the ankle. I also fractured the bone going to the 2nd toe. (that is the toe next to the big toe) I have a screw going threw the big toe and into the 2nd toe. My real question is how long of a time should I expect to be out of work, and how long of a recovery? Are there any symptoms I should be looking for?
