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!
An avulsion fracture is when a ligament pulls a piece of bone away from the remaining bone.
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).
What is mastoiditis?!Why would you need to know that!

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.
Yes. Statistically speaking it is the safest mode of common travel.
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
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 :)
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.

no it is not good because it will cause more damage to the ankle and that is not good!
I got a hairline fracture in my ankle by to running up a slide and jumping off and due to not wearing proper shoes. When I landed I mistakenly landed on my left foot and due t…o all that force coming down on that one ankle, the outer part of my foot touched the side of my calf..... It swelled up so bad that when I got it X-Ray'd the doctors couldn't see the fracture, they thought I just got a real bad sprain. It wasn't until a week later they realized I had a hairline fracture in my ankle. Sorry for rambling on. :P
