Compression fracture

(2 discussions)

My MRI shows shadowing below the talus and have recently had a CT scan.
I see my Dr.(GP) about results next week………
I am wearing an air cast when ever I go out and this seems to control the swelling….
I have been limping around for almost 6 months(went over on right ankle in October)….
I have an appointment to see Orthopedic Surgen for late JUNE….
I am getting a little tired of limping around….
If surgery is needed, could you tell me what is done for a compression fracture and how much longer would I be off my feet?…..
Inactivity and weight gain = depression!
Thanks for your time.

    As much as I wish I could tell you, I do not have enough information to give you any recommendations. Your orthopedist should be able to further clarify the treatment plan. Write down your questions before your visit.Goood luck.

    You might want to look at a new invention on webbslegsling. The leg sling supports your foot a few inches above the ground and lets you be non-weight bearing while you’re on crutches. The mid-section is elastic, so you can put down your foot if you have to. Makes getting around a lot easier.
