Hello. My name is Cristina. I am 28years old. I broke my ankle 32 days ago figure skating. I have a spiral fibula fracture. I could not put my foot in walking position. My lower left leg was casted for the first two weeks and I was no weight bearing. Doctor told me at the end of the two weeks I would get a walking cast. During that time the pain was terrible. I passed out because of the pain. At the two weeks, I visited my doctor and he said looks good see you in four weeks and I was still no weight bearing. No explanation. I had to stop him from running out of the room to remind him that my foot was still not in walking position.He said not to worry because I would probably regain full motion in my ankle and he didn't see any need to change the cast. I went home and gradually started to feel better. I was happy because I felt like I was healing. However for the past I started feeling alot of pain. It feels like I broke my ankle again. I feel like my foot is not connected to my leg. It hurts alot at the site of the injury. Is this normal to feel like it has gotten worse instead of better after 32 days? Should I call the doctor? I'm not happy with my doctor because I feel like he doesn't have time for me and he does not explain anything. I really feel ignorant about my injury. What should I do?
