Good afternoon. I just came across your blog and I just want to say thank you for taking your time to respond to so many people! I would love any information you could provide me after I tell you about my injury.
Ok, so here we go. March 16, 2015, I went to one of those wonderful trampoline places for a birthday party and badly sprained my left ankle. I had to be carried off and my ankle swelled up instantly. It took me about a month to get an appointment to see a podiatrist. In the meantime, I kept it iced, elevated, wrapped with an ankle brace and I was using crutches/cane/knee walker to get around. My first appointment with the doc, after x-rays, I did not break anything. He said it seemed like a 3rd degree sprain with a high ankle sprain and it was frozen, which does not happen very often after a sprain. He said this happens maybe 1 in every 1,000 sprains. Just my luck, huh?
I was put in a knee-high air boot, weight bearing and sent to physical therapy and to check back later. After about 2 weeks, we realized my ankle was not moving or going to start moving, so we moved my check up to be seen earlier. I had an MRI, and my doc said it was a basically a frozen joint and still the high ankle sprain and 3rd degree sprain.
