Todays visit with the Ortho folks and more X-rays, discovered that I have in addition to my Distal Fibular Fracture, a proximal Fibular Head Fracture. A crack on the top of the Fibula Bone. Also they are worried about soft tissue damage between the Fibula and the Tibia Bone. They have me scheduled for a MRI on Thursday. Leg is in a splint cast and I am learning how to maneuver on a set of crutches, as they don't want me to put weight on the ankle / leg. Bones will heal on their own but if there is damage to the ligaments, muscles, soft tissue, etc. between the two bones then surgery might be needed. MRI will tell. Looks like I am for sure grounded for 6 to 8 weeks for sure. The Fibular bone and assorted soft tissue gives the ankle it stability and strength.
