Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern and would be happy to help. I have seen the pictures you have shared (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity). It is difficult to assess if it is a sprain or a fracture by looking at the picture. However, if you can bear weight on it, it is less likely to be a fracture. I suggest you get an X-ray of the ankle done. Meanwhile, you can start using the recommended medicines and apply an icepack. Consult a specialist doctor, talk to him or her, and start the medication with their consent. I hope this helps.
Investigations to be done:
I suggest an X-ray of the left ankle, anteroposterior and lateral view.Treatment plan:
I suggest the below treatment plan for five days:Preventive measures:
1.Tablet Zerodol SP (Paracetamol, Aceclofenac, and Serratiopeptidase) twice a day.
2. Tablet Omez 20 mg (Domperidone) before breakfast.
3. Ice pack application.
4. Diclogesic gel (Diclofenac, Methyl Salicylate, and Menthol) to be applied locally.
Preventive measures like non-weight-bearing mobilization have to be followed.Regarding follow up:
I suggest a review with an X-ray.
