Chronic Non-Healing Foot Fracture ???
What does this mean “Chronic Non-Healing Foot Fracture”?
I just had Xrays taken last week of my left foot and this is what they reported, or so I was told by the nurse on the phone.
I am being sent to see an orthapedic next week.
Just wondering what to expect?
I fell on July 4th and thought I had sprained my ankle.
Stayed off of it for a week or so. Then began walking on it, was very painful at first but then it would ease up and be OK.
Until I got off my feet…A few weeks later, my foot started swelling on the top and I couldn’t fit in my shoe…just has kept getting worse. Now 2 1/2 months later the pain can be a 10+ at times.
It can be constant throbbing to sharp stabbing pains….
It feels like painful electrical shocks sometimes. Other times, when I step down on my foot to walk, it feels like the bones are trying to push through the skin.
I also have tingling and numbness going to my toes now.
Pain up in my ankle area now too.
