Broke my leg/ankle last year. Major boo-age now my ankle has a dull ache all the time. Could have been worse.

that sucks, I sprained my right ankle a week before I went to florida for x-mas break this year. They gave me the cast and told me to use crutches for 2-3 days and try to stay off it for a week. Well needless to say ADD kicked in and I was walking on it 1-2 days and working 4 days later.

Trust me if they say take it east do it. I didn't have much of a choice didn't have a roommate had to get stuff loaded to take home and all my friends were gone for x-mas break already. It took almost 2.5 months for the swelling to go down and after 1.5 months later and it still hurting to walk on without keeping it stiff they sent me to physical therapy.

I also found out this fall I have degenerative arthritis in my left ankle/foot and now first hand how much bad ankles suck. Most days I get out of bed walking like an old man cause they're stiff and hurt. And at age 22 thats a bitch.

I know all about bad ankles. I have a piece of titanium in my left fibula from destroying it 3 years ago. I also dislocated my ankle while it broke. As for taking it easy thats not an option. I am a Hosptial SuperFlashlight Cop.

Yeah, me too.
I was wrestling Godzilla this one time, and he threw a planet at me, and it hit me right in the ankle. It almost bled a lot.






Sorry, had to do it, sucks about the ankle. Take it easy.

I wasn't calling him a winer, I just think it's funny when someone posts about an injury or illness, and the "me too" crowd swarms in. :chiefwoohaw:

With a name like lets blaze lets hope your employer doesn't do a drug screening to verify if you were under the influence or not during above said accident....

I wouldn't report it

How could it have been worse? You broke your ankle and it still hurts

I'm guessing you reported it since you got an air cast. If you didn't, make sure you report it in case you develop any complications and have to take time off.

One of the guys on my gymnastics team terribly dislocated his left elbow and tore some ligaments last night and our biggest show of the year is in 4 days.
