I have tried everything. It simply refuses.

I have a large, swollen spot in the front of my ankle. None of the ligaments and tendons will flex up.

I was forced to walk without my boot... I'm basically walking on the ball of my foot, due to my Achilles Tendinitis... And of course, my ankle rolled. Bam, swelling.

Now it refuses to pop.

It's be grinding and locking since the day I did this, but now it's worse, and everyone says I'm just faking it. If I was faking it, I wouldn't still be in the boot...

I'm so freakin' frustrated. I'm being forced to finish the semester at the school that is still trying to force me to participate in gym. All they care about is sports... I cannot play sports. I can barely even walk...

I don't know what to do anymore. -.-

I should talk to my surgeon about it, but whatever... my mum won't make another appointment with him until I'm out of the boot, but I can't get out of the boot... I can't wear a shoe... My foot goes numb in less than 30 seconds because of the swelling, and there's no support to my ankle, which just lolls around without support...

I'm not doing physical therapy anymore because it wasn't doing anything... at all. The stretches they had me doing for 3 weeks almost every day just made my leg swell, and didn't do anything at all to help the tendinitis, and I've been doing it for months, with NO improvement to my sprain...

Can I just be DONE?

Damn Sorry to hear this is happening with your ankle know how you feel in some ways due to having a high ankle sprain too but yes. And yes PT doesn't always help with these injury's in the long run as mine isn't getting better either. and damn with the shoe that's not good i am stuck in thongs myself as they want me to try and keep the muscle tone up in my calf not that its working cause i cant bend my knee cause that stirs up my ankle but yes and with the physio did they get you to do calf stretches? as my physio said that's not a good thing as it just causes the bones to spread again due to the syndesmosis being from your ankle up to your knee. i cant do anything that bends my ankle as it just makes it worse even bending my knee makes it worse and i have constant instability too. Can you ring your surgeon at all and talk to him about it? What about just taking off the boot and showing your mum just how bad it is? With the instability? As that may show her just how bad it is. Hope you can get something sorted out for it and it works out in the end. I know where you are coming from with it but yes all the best and hope something can be done for you soon
