10 weeks post Ankle Sprain
Hi I am sure you remember me by now, anyway I sprained my left ankle with ATFL/CFL involvement, with it not healing in the last 9-10 weeks I have had an MRI that rules everything out other than the the sprain. I am now in a non weightbearing short cast after having been in a tie up ankle brace I think it was an ASO Brace 2 weeks post sprain, then I went into a pneumatic walking boot about 3 weeks ago and just yesterday was put in the NWBC (short). It’s a workers comp imjury and I cannot see another doctor, I am very frustrated with this. Is it abnormal for it to take 10 weeks for a grade 3 sprain??? My doctor says he cannot do anything surgical and that if this doesn’t work he will do an injection. Would that be a cortisone shot??
I have asked him many questions and I never seem to get the same answer.
I know you are limited in how you can help, but I thought I would try as I am reaching my breaking point quickly!
