I'm a registered and certified orthopedic technologist...so my specialty is really casting, splinting, and fracture care.  Just want you to know who you're talking to :)  In order to answer your questions I would need more information.  What kind of fracture did you have?  Was it open, meaning the bone came through the skin?  How did you fracture your ankle?
