Katie, they told me that if it feels like something is "not right" to come in to the office and get it checked. So my toes were dark purple blue and it hurt to a degree that there are no polite words to type on here.
Back in to the doctor's for a check. It is supposed to swell and be blue!! (No one told me that) Things did get better though. I taught my son to trick my baby girl to come close enough so I could snatch her for a diaper change
, I really, really stayed off the foot almost all the time. I could not drive because I could not get the kids in the car seats and it was simply not worth trying to take them out. I kept the foot up on pillows, we watched WAY too much TV and kids movies.
And it hurt.
The only thing is that time was on my side. I had a doctor who insisted on surgery right away, he fixed it right with pins so at least the bones are where they belong. I healed very well (incisions on each side of the ankle) and when they finally let me start to walk again, I took it slow.
Once you get out of your cast, ice is your friend. You will be swelling up a lot as you try to use this foot. Keep it elevated when you can and don't try to do too much too soon. You will need to get a support of some type to wear after the cast. I did not get one since they did not know I have EDS.
It does sound like you need another recheck since you fell. Take care of yourself! ((hugs))
