 Broken Ankle and didn't know it?
Heather L    12:41pm Aug 12 2011

Has anyone broken a leg or ankle bone without knowing it? To make a long story short, I eversion sprained my ankle about a month ago and didn't realize that I had broken bones until this week. Yesterday's x-ray confirmed a fracture of the distal fibula, posterior malleolus of tibia and ligament disruption that is displacing the ankle joint mortise.

(Read the long story here: http://www.mybrokenleg.com/diary/heather3/)

Since it has started to heal in a displaced position can they still fix it or did I wait too long to get medical help? Am I going to have a permanent disability? Curious/nervous about what the outcome may be...

I'm seeing an ortho next week, but I'm getting concerned now. I've Googled everything I can think of, but I can't find any instances of someone walking around on a broken ankle for weeks like I did. I'd just like to know if anyone has had a similar situation. Seems that everything I read is about people who knew they had broken bones and setting and/or surgery was practically immediate. I'd appreciate your help and advice.
