I fell down the stairs 2 months ago but just had it checked out about a month ago. I'm in an aircast up to my knee. It's feeling okay while in the aircast but when I have it off my ankle kills. Especially when sleeping and turning and pushing on my leg to turn over. I'm 48 years old. The pain pills don't work and they actually keep me awake at nignt.
Went to the Dr. today about my fractured leg. He said it was a bad fracture and not healed yet. I have to continue wearing the air cast, The big clod hoping thing. Was hoping I could go back to my sneakers at least. I've been in the cast for 4 weeks already. BB
