I recently wrenched the you-know-what out of my right ankle. I’ve never had a broken bone – at least not identified by an x-ray as such – but this was starting to have me worried. I wore a brace for several days, and although it was feeling better, it was still swollen and very tender.
Anyway, 3 X-ray shots later and I’m told there are no broken bones. I’m supposed to wear the brace as tight as I can for the next week, 24 hours a day, and see how things go. Can’t say I’m liking that too much, but I sure am glad I’m not sitting here in a cast with crutches.
