Ankle Fractures in Children

Posted by Curious on 4/08/05 at 10:36 (172830)

Our daughter sustained a fracture in her ankle 6 weeks agoe she was in a cast for 4 weeks. Should she still be in pain two weeks after the cast is removed? How long should she continue to use crutches after the cast is removed. The Doctor said everything looks great in her Xrays.

She could have torn ligament which don't show up on x-rays. If she is still in alot of pain and the doctors examination shows ligament damage you need to get an MRI of the ankle.
