I fell on my ankle heard the crack went to a&e. I waited near enough 2 hours, to be seen by a doctor who was not really interested, and just told me to let him see ankle. I had tuligrip on, which he told me to remove, but I could not do that as I could't get leg up high enough. He asked how I got it on, I told him my sister put it on. He removed it looked at the top of foot (did not touch or examine foot) and said I'll send you for xray.
The girl who did that xray was more concerned at the bruising etc to ankle. After this I went back to the doctor, who told me it was torn liagaments to rest, elavate, ice and strong painkillers. That was it.
When I have checked this up it does tell you this but also should have been told to put tubigrip on and use crutches. I think, if I was lucky, I saw the doctor a total of 5 minutes. What a waste of time at the glasgow royal infirmary.
