What’s wrong with my ankle?
Baby Girl Asked: What’s wrong with my ankle?
Ok so I am a gymnast and my foot got pushed on point to hard about 3 weeks ago, and it started to hurt and it's been hurting. So I just went to the doctors and my family doctor said it could be sprained and sent me to a orthopedist. At the orthopedist they got me x-rays and then he said it looked like it was broken?! He was looking at me like it was really bad. And when he look and felt around and twisted around my ankle he looked like it seriously was broken which scared me to death. It was popping like crazy too when he was twisting it around. And I was really suprised since it wasn't hurting like crazy or anything, I mean I can still do all my tricks it just hurts and bothers me. And so he took a ultra sound and it looked like it was broken as well there. So he put me in a boot and sent me to get a CT scan of it. And then he called me and he said it wasn't broken, but I have arthritis and my tissue connecting my heel to my ankle is torn or broken or something? He also said it might be really weak, and rest is the only thing I an do. I am so confused. I don't know whether to wear my boot, or still practice like normal, or to get a brace for it? Is what he says I have even serious or is it not a big deal or anything? My mom says she might take me to a different doctor since this one was so confusing. What do you think is wrong with my ankle? Wouldn't if the x-ray showed it was broken the CT scan would too? I AM SO CONFUSED. Could the X-ray and the ultra sound have been wrong?
thats very weird and confsing i think you should go to the another doctor but when i broke my ankle in january they need it was broken before the x-rays even showed it i did it on beam sadly i did a layout and well it didnt end well…but i i dont think its broken if you can stand because march 27th i got my ccast off and into a boot and i decided to do a bars routine stupidly and im bck in a cast currently …. so i believe you probably just sprained it but still go to another doctor because with all tht confusion i wouldnt know what to do either Best of luck:)<3
