Hi, I fractured my fibula and have been in an aircast for 5 weeks now. I still have pain in the ankle. It also is still a bit swollen. I also am not able to point my toes. My foot has some pain down the side to my pinky toe which still has numbness. When I try to put weight on my foot it feels like needles across the ball of my foot.
I am due to get x-rays in 5 days from now, but I am worried that the fracture is not healed yet and that there is maybe ligament or nerve damage. If this is so, what will the next treatment be do you think?
Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
