i went to the hospital sunday and they told me my foot was severely sprained, strained,and bruised and they sent me home with an elastic bandage around it and crutches! . its now a couple days later and my pain is still strong and hurting very badly. i think it could be something more! should i go see an ortho doctor or wait it out? the hospital told me if if dont get any better i might need to get a boot on my foot for a while. i still cant walk or apply pressure to my left foot at all.
You should see an orthopedist and get some new xrays done to see how you are coming along. Sprains are often worse that a frscture and can take a long time to heal, especially if you have them repeatedly. You may want to get an orthopedic cast (removable boot) from the doc for extra support of the foot and ankle during this healing time. Make sure you are exercising the foot for range of motion to prevent the muscles from getting stiff. good luck
Yes you should see a orthopedic surgeon.You have sprained your ankles so many times you probably have a lot of cartilage damage,ligament,tendons,muscle damage.You can injure it so many times then it will just not get any better.Make an appointment with a refered orthopedic surgeon.Take care of your self.P.S.Ice it a lot do it for about 30 minutes,then do ten to twenty minutes of heat,until you get in with the orthopedic surgeon.
