Is it safe to travel by airplane with an ankle fracture?
Yes, it should be safe to travel by airplane with an ankle fracture however, if possible it might be sensible to have a companion travel with you to help with luggage. It might be worth checking with your doctor to see if he or she recommends you to travel or not.

Thanks for the feedback!
It depends on the Weber classification of the fracture. If it is a stable fracture, a walking cast or protective boot may be all that is needed. If the fracture is unstabl…e, surgery may be needed to correct the problem.
If you have fractured your ankle and it did not require surgery, you will likely have to wear a cast for 6 to 8 weeks. If you require surgery, or there are other complicat…ions, you may need to wear the cast for longer.
it is only safe if your doctor tells you it is, it might be safe for you but it wont be safe for people around you because the germs are in the air for a however long the jour…ney is, but mostly it depends on what your doctor says, so the best thing would be to see your doctor/gp. hope this helps :D
The standard test is called PAD - Pain, Abnormal mobility and Deformity. In fact, with an ankle it can be very difficult to know unless it's obviously bent in the wrong …direction. Best thing to do if you suspect a fracture is to go to your closest A&E hospital (ED/ER depending on where you live).
Unless you're going to fly a supersonic jet or travel into outer space this should not be a problem.
Yes. Statistically speaking it is the safest mode of common travel.
I say it's around 71/2 weeks before you can walk again.
Most fractures that aren't compound in nature first and foremost hurt like hell; second, they always swell up a lot; and depending on the severity, they may or may not bruise,… but usually if the bone is fractured bruising does occur - at least it has in every fracture I've ever had, and that's quite a few. The only way to determine for sure of course is with an X-ray, but they normally want you to wait until the swelling goes down before taking it as swelling impedes the picture of the bone. Many X-rays in the past that were taken immediately after an injury would show no fracture, but on re-examination and another X-ray after swelling had gone down, the fracture would be seen. That's why today they usually make you wait before taking one if you're swollen as they know the picture won't be as accurate.
The time to heal most fractures is about 6 to 8 weeks, but may vary somewhat depending on your age and general health. Smoking also slows bone healing.
Immobilization and minimal weight bearing
okay this is NOT a painful procesa you need to get ingiger tis weakens the bone walk down the stairs and as you do jolt hard and fast you ankleround to face the wall you are s…ure to get a hairline fracture bad enough for a cast and crutches for at least 6 weeks with no complicationsfollowing :)
not being able to stand on the leg attached to the fractured ankle, swelling more and more after the moment of fracture, turning red, sometimes bones sticking out, or yo…u can feel the bone broken underneeth the skin
Yes Because adding more weight will be harder for your ankles and the others. You should never use a weight technique its very bad.
I think at least one or two months maybe!!
If your talking about a tibular/fibular injury, usually about 6 to 8 weeks depending on severity of fx bone and bone quality the small bones take longer because of the constan…t pressure on your foot
