Hello: Can anyone advise if they have experienced this. I had my 6 week followup appointment today for a weber c ankle fracture and on my surgical discharge papers it said I would have an xray at 6 weeks but I saw different doctor and he said I didn't need one?
I explained to him that on my discharge notes it stated I was due an xray at 6 weeks but he had my 2 week xrays on his screen and he said "no we don't need to do one"
I was confused by this but went with it trusting he knows what he's doing.
I then had my cast removed and into a walking boot which he said I could only use for balance and must not put full weight on.
I feel really vulnerable and scared the bones haven't healed properly. I mean how does he know without an xray at this stage?
I have another operation to have the 2 syndesmosis screws out in about 4 weeks and the doctor said they will xray it then.
