Ankle disfiguration

Ankle disfiguration.

I fell and hurt my ankle in a hole. When I fell it popped really loudly. It hurt really bad for a minute but then the pain subsided partically. It hurt to walk on it for about half an hour but it is still bulged out on one side after three months.

Hello Lillian,
I'd start with an x-ray just to be sure you didn't break anything.

Clearly if it's still 'bulging out' then something happened; it's difficult and of no real value for me to speculate.

Then start looking for someone highly recommended who works with feet and ankles. Don't leave it because it will become arthritic.

Let us know how you get on.
