Re: Swelling after 2 months/HELP

I talked to my Dr and a specialist. I'm not kidding when I say I was told "If it hurts don't do it" Was waiting for them to say "Pull my finger". I have pain in my ankle bone and not just in the two bones they say are broken in the top/middle of my foot. I was put in a walking boot with velco tabs. It was two sizes too big. It took two weeks for them to realize they gave me a Man's size 8. Received no instructions for care, when to get off the crutches... if it doesn't hurt do it was the comment. The swelling has continued for the entire two months. No MRI done. Specialist said he didn't need to see my x-rays he was more concerned about how I was feeling. I've been in pain the entire two months. The only time it felt good was in the temp cast the ER gave me right at first. I'm 125 pounds, 5ft 3 and worked out four times a week. I don't smoke drink or do drugs. I'm considered young looking for 45 years old. No ideas why the swelling has been so bad. I guess I'm just trying to have something to tell the Dr when I go... something to ask them to ck or test. I can't get my foot into the walking sandales they told me to wear. The swelling is that bad. Help.

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
