Torn ankle ligament

(2 Posts)

I have torn a ligament in my ankle. The GP referred to it as, 'the big one,' and told me to rest. Much as I know I need to, I can't. Kids and dog need looking after and I have two part-time jobs.

I am elevating my foot where possible and wearing a support bandage during the day. I don't know what else to do and this is getting me down. I can't take anti-inflammatories and have underlying health issues, which mean healing is likely to take a long time.

Any advice? Thanks.
