I’m 35, 185 lbs, 6 foot, healthy and active. I have Kaiser, so their ER put a soft cast/splint on currently. These are their notes on the x-ray: There is a fracture at the distal right fibula extending superiorly from the level of the ankle mortise. There is lateral displacement of the distal fracture fragment measuring 6 mm. There are no other acute bony abnormalities. There is mild hallux valgus alignment. There is soft tissue swelling throughout the ankle.
Would you recommend surgery or not?
