i fractured my right ankle lateral lmalleous non displaced. i was casted for 6 weeks, and then they put me in a boot for 3weeks and told me to wean myself out of my boot little by little. i did and started using an ankle brace and noticed quite a bit of pain during the day. i went back to the dr. and he took an xray and said he still sees a break line and to keep wearing the boot and come back in 4 weeks. if the break line is still there , he said i will need surgery. i am very confused. what does he mean? i feel like i am alot better although i still have to ice and put leg up when i am on it too much. this happend march it is now june
