Default Wife fell.....

My wife and her high school girlfriends were having a "girls weekend" enjoying a few beverages and pool time.... At the end of the night my wife decided to miss the last step on a staircase and rolled her ankle. I get the call around midnight that they are headed home due to her fall. They got home around 130. Her left ankle is swollen, bruised and very painful!! She spent most of the day in bed yesterday keeping it iced and pumping anti-inflammatory meds. We decided to wait and go see our PCP due to a $950 ER deductible (thank you Obamacare). PCP sent her for x-rays ($74,37 cash pay) this morning and it looks like a ligament tore of a piece of her ankle bone. Now waiting to hear back about an MRI then Ortho appointment.

She just started full time last Wednesday after working part time since January. Our concern, outside of her health, is that she will not be able to go back to work in a timely manner. As a physical therapy assistant she is constantly on her feet. Lifting, moving, assisting patients...

An extra prayer would be very helpful!!

Hope she gets better soon.
Happened to me Christmas in 2016. I jumped off a fence, landed on a rock and rolled my ankle. My ankle and the top of the foot were very bruised and swollen for a couple weeks. I never went to the doctor but probably should have. I had pain in that ankle for over a year but it did get better eventually.

Avulsion fracture likely won't require surgery. 4 to 6 weeks in a boot. RICE rest, ice, compression elevation.
Hopefully she will heal fast and get back quickly. Sorry for her misfortune.

I rolled my ankle pretty bad and tore some ligaments, ended up getting a plate put into my ankle. Missed 3 months of work. Prayers up and a speedy recovery.

Prayers for quick healing to your wife. I feel her pain, as I have had issues with my right ankle. I have had to cut boots off my foot twice due to swelling after rolling my ankle.

Only thing we have been told so far is... avulsion fracture of the lateral malleous... assuming she will be sent for MRI. Then ortho for a plan...

I'd let the ortho Dr make the call on the MRI most likely they will be able to tell if necessary by xrays.

Had the same injury. No surgery but did 6 weeks in a walking boot. That was 10 years ago and I still don’t trust that ankle.

I had a foot injury that took years to overcome. X-rays never could show anything wrong, and I just toughed it out. Started wearing lace boots that fit fairly tight and within months it was ok. I hope your wife heals quicker than I did.

I have had the same injury. Likely in a boot for several weeks. Just did something fairly similar last week and ended up with a distal fibula fracture. Out of commission for 4-10 weeks but hopefully have avoided surgery. Best of luck to her in the recovery!
