I had a Grade III ankle sprain with several torn ligaments. This happened close to a month and a half ago. Went to see an OS and he put me in a cast boot and crutches (no weight bearing). Went back 2 times for recheck and on last visit OS wanted me to start physical therapy. Two days after that visit, my foot started to hurt a lot. Sharp shooting pain shot up my foot and up my leg. I called my OS and he said that it's nothing and I shouldn't be having any more pain. He says I'm too far out for any more severe pain. Yeah, OK! So I went to Urgent Care and they suspected a Lisfrank injury. They did an x-ray and two doctos both agreed that it looked like Lisfranc. So they scheduled a CT Scan. Went in for that and my OS called with results......NORMAL. Now he didn't listen to me about the pain any other time and I'm worried that he isn't being truthful about the CT results. I know "Why wouldn't he be"? That would just be asking for malpractice. My body is still telling me that something is wrong. I can't walk without the sharp, shooting pain, I have a lot of pain going up my leg and into my thigh. I can't go see another OS because I would need a referral and that won't happen. HELP!
