I was wondering if I should be concerned...I fell down some steps last Thursday injured both of my ankles. I went to the hospital immediately after waiting 3 1/2 hours to be seen they X-rayed both ankles finding that my left was sprained but my right was broke in 2 different places and that surgery wasn't needed at that time the Orthopedic removed the splint and glanced at my foot where he then puts a air cast and tells me not to put any pressure on it what so ever to come back in 2 weeks since then I have done what I was told to do. I am in pain and the pain meds aren't helping out much my foot keeps swelling and tingling the top of my foot is turning red very very sensitive my toes are swelling and turning red and I can hardly move them without much pain being involved...I know bruising swelling and pain is a part of a fracture but is the rest of what I have mentioned normal as well??? Should I go back to the DR or wait the 2 weeks???

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
