About 7 months ago i had a 2200 lb beam dropped on my left ankle at work. I was on workers comp and the docter said i had a severe sprain and probably tore most of the ligaments in my foot. He did not give me an MRI he only took xrays. After about 5 different sets of xrays and 3 doctors they said there weren't any broken or fractured bones. My doctor kept saying i think it will get better and released me back to work. After 7 months my ankle is still pretty bruised, appears to be flat, and causes severe pain when im on it all day at work. Is this normal and should i try and get a second opinion? Please Help!!!!
