Very painful, swollen at least twice it's normal size. There is deep purple bruising across the entire top of foot ankle alongside ankle and on bottom of foot. It has now been two weeks and the bruising is gone, however, the pain is still very much still there and a large knot on the side of foot. My foot is broken at the third metatarsal and is broken and one piece is sitting on top of the other. Today I go see an orthopedic specialist and don't know what will happen at this time.

My wife broke and dislocated her ankle almost five years ago and she is now almost hardly able to walk. She had steel plates and screws put in, and they were left there for two and a half years, then when her foot got bad, they took out the plates, but by then her foot was completely locked, and even physiotherapy can't work. The bones are touching off each other and her foot gets inflamed and very sore.
