3 Months ago I fell at gymnastics and was told I had an avulsion fracture to my left ankle. They put me in a walking boot for 2 months but it only got worse. Nothing showed up on the x-ray so they did an MRI. It showed another fracture in the ankle and they put a walking cast on. I get my cast off in 3 days which will make it a month that I had the walking cast on. Should I expect them to put me back in the boot, or a brace? I'm not having much pain at all anymore. What should I expect when I go back?
