I’ve taken up this new hobby of cage fighting …
One of the ER nurses suggested that sounded better than what actually happened.
Stepped off stool in barn. Ankle twisted underneath me. I went splat.
Not broken. Sprained to the point that the treatment is similar. Ligaments are apparently hard to heal b/c they are not well vascularized. Reminds me of equine lower legs.
Wear boot. Take it easy. How long depends on whether I stretched or tore the ligaments and how badly. Recovery could be up to 6 weeks, depending on damage.
