I'll kick us off. Nothing bad (thank God). I sprained my left ankle rather badly at indoor the other night. We were behind and getting thoroughly outclassed. My friend played a through ball across goal. Their guy blocked me but I lunged with my right, got the shot away (weak shot and was saved) and then landed really funnily on my left. It hurt like fuck and I went off. It hurt for a few minutes. Then, the pain subsided. I was going to play in central defence because we had no subs. Then I actually looked at at it and was horrified to see it was twice the size of normal. So I didn't go on again that match.
I did RICER that night and saw the GP the next day. She thinks it's sprained (probably grade 2) but not fractured. For that reason she doesn't think I need to get it X-rayed (although she gave me a referral for an X-ray, if I want). It can bear weight but sometimes it hurts quite a lot. Hurts like fuck at the angle when I have to put weight on it while putting trousers on (if you can picture that).
Still swollen but not as much (48 hours later).
I'm going to see a physio (as she recommends it and says I'll be more susceptible to respraining it when I start playing again).
Anybody had similar?
I'm trying to work out how many weeks I'll be out of indoor for. And when I can go to the gym and do squats and deadlifts.
