Patient :Hi i hurt my ankle about a week ago i stepped on the side of my right foot... then i tried to walk further and i could but it was uncumfortable it started swelling a bit. I then went to see a doctor she said i had hurt it but she did not know how bad she recomended a orthopedic surgeon to check it out and she put it in plaster is it nessesary? Its still in plaster but i can walk on it without any pain. Is it just a sprain and can i just take of the plaster?
