How long will my ankle/leg be swollen after a fracture and torn MCL?
On March 12, 2010, I slipped on some wet tile and fell fracturing my left fibula in 2 places (one near the knee, one near the ankle), I dislocated my left knee cap and tore my MCL. I was put in a cam boot and knee brace, used crutches, the whole 9 yards. Thankfully I did not require any surgery. My last x-rays in late April, showed the fractures were healing nicely and as of late May, the Ortho doc felt the fractures were healed. My knee is not 100%, it's about 85-90%. Still a bit stiff. I'm no longer wearing a cam boot or knee brace and I'm still having a great deal of swelling in my leg/ankle and it's mid June, 2010. There isn't any pain or discoloration. This has been my first major injury since I was a kid, so I've not been certain as to what to really expect. I just hope this swelling won't last forever. It's not cute having legs and ankles two different sizes. ;-) Does anyone have any suggestions or advice for this situation? I would greatly appreciate any and all advice, suggestions or stories of your own experience. Thanks so much!!

Hello, Post traumatic soft tissue fibrosis will cause pain and swelling in your soft tissue. I assume you had PT done on your lower extremity - very important. PT's do not work on soft tissue fibrosis. Make an appointment with your local CMT and get some work done. Also Cold Laser therapy by Erchonia PL 5000 and Ultrasound will be able to get some good results. Those modalities should be available in your local D.C. office.
