I recently (about 2 weeks ago) fell on the outside of my ankle and rolled it while playing basketball. I went to the hospitial and they told me to go to a specialist. He said it could possibly be a broken growth plate since it didn't show up on x-ray, and from his tests. He gave me a walking boot and told me to use cruches if I need to. I can walk with the walking boot, but without it I can only stand. Is it really broke, and how long should I be out for?
