Swelling: Fibula fractureIt varies according to the severity of the soft tissue injury. I tell my patients that their ankle will still be swollen with activity for many months. After surgery on my own fibula my ankle was swollen for nearly a year whenever I did any exercise. If swelling is painless or at most, slightly uncomfortable, it is rarely necessary to worry about it. I recommend (and used) compression stockings for symptom relief. If late swelling is painful or if it hasn't been swelling then starts up, you should report to your doctor.
How long after a fibula fracture can I expect swelling and pain? after a long day on my feet?? (3 months? 6 months, etc.) after a normal day? (3 months, 6 months, etc)
how can you stop pains?
how many spots can it be in. when i brooke my arm it had lots of pain but it felt like a tingle!is that normale?
I broke my fibula and dislocated my ankle March 31, 2002. I had problems with swelling and tried a compression stocking...knee high. I was AMAZED at the difference! Not only is the swelling less, the pains and itching are less. I recommend trying it!
