Screwed Ankle thread... Who's had pins/surgery?

About 7 years ago I rolled my right ankle on an autocross track. my entire right side of my foot and about 6-7 inches up my lower leg was black and blue for 2 months, I wore an ankle brace and it healed eventually. About every 2 years since then I've rolled it and there is an immense pain and swelling that lasts a few days.

I did it again at the fair 2 weeks ago. There was just a small amount of bruising and its been swollen for sometime now. Problem is, I can barely put enough pressure on my foot to even get my shoes on. Additionally, every2-3 days-- just about when im confident I can walk without limping, I support my self with my foot and I go crashing down in pain. Its happened at least 7 times in the last 2 weeks.

I can still rotate my foot/ankle, but there is some noticeable resistance and some pain in doing so.

What am I looking at here, pins/screws, surgery? Are the tendons totally stretched out and screwed or are they still ok?

OH MY GOD!!! I LOVE SUCKING COCK!!!!!
 
Who knows? I bet a qualified doctor might!

I bet he could even tell you what you made worse by trying to walk on it "at least 7 times in the last 2 weeks".

Little tip for young players- if you cannot walk and the problem persists, seek medical advice.

not a doctor but I've fucked up my foot before and it took 6 months to get over the pain. It was a overstretched tendon that tore, and being foolish i kept doing martial arts and kept injuring it again and again.


You can have a multitude of problems, from hairline fractures, torn tendons or ligaments or overstretched them, maybe a combination of them all. Since it is happening again and again it sounds to me like you tore or stretched a ligament, thus providing less stabilizing support for your foot, allowing the injury to occur again.

You need to see a doctor else it will get worse, and X ray will probably be first, then maybe a MRI if needed.

Depending on the severity of the injury they can fix your tendon or ligament through surgery or physical therapy if the damage in not severe

Ankles can be fucked up for life man. See a doctor before trying to walk on it again.

I had a similar "fucked up ankle" story. I had a standard ankle sprain after landing wrong in a game of basketball. I tried to continue playing like a dumbass and did it again. It was hurting like a mofo - but then I went to sleep a bit later. I woke up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I stepped on my ankle and could still feel the pain. Halfway to the bathroom my ankle starts to feel COMPLETE agony. Like - fall to the floor and start crawling. I crawled back to my bed to lay down and it would not stop - the pain was seriously unbearable. After about 20 minutes the pain started to subside. It happened a couple other times when I put ANY pressure on that ankle what-so-ever. After a day or two it was gone though.

I fucking hate ankle sprains, but yeah - go to see a doctor if it's really serious.

Last September I got some wicked stress fractures in my left heel, left ankle, right knee, and right ankle. Still ran on it for a week even though it was swollen and the pain was at about the "make eyeballs roll back in head and puke" level. Even today it's tender as hell and I am fighting to get healthcare - and this happened in the US Army and I got medboarded for it. The VA sucks.
