Around two weeks ago I had a fall off bars, and hurt my ankle/foot. After many xrays and mris, I finally have the results. I am waiting to see a specialist or physio, however I would just like to know if anyone has had any experience with the following so I can wrap my head around it (currently unsure as to what much of it means).

Anterior talofibular ligament and calcaneofibular ligaments are ruptured.
Calcaneofibular ligament avulsed from tip of fibula.
Small bone fragment avulsed from the fibula measuring 3.9mm and several other fragments noted off the tip.
Deltoid ligament contused.
Bone bruising on the medial talus.
Tenosynvitis of the tibialis posterior tendon and the peroneal tendon (presumed post traumatic).
Small ankle joint effusion.

I am not asking for medical advice specifically, just to know if anyone has had any experience, what healing time/procedures were like and what exactly it means, just so I know what to expect. Thank you :)

That is a nasty accident for sure. Bone fragments usually need to be removed. detached or ruptured ligaments may need to be reattached. Also sounds like there is swelling and bruising all around. But that is normal for a fracture/sprain.

Keep resting and icing it. I had a nasty fracture/sprain of my left foot/ankle, it took time to heal to 100%. Patience is key.
