"I can't put any weight on my leg"

About: Victoria Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I went over on my ankle and the doctor didn't X-ray me he just gave me a moon boot and said there is a chance I have a broken bone! But to come back in a week! So I've had the boot on and whenever I take it off the pain is intensifying! And I was trying to walk in my boot today I felt a tear in my leg and now I can't put any weight at all on my left foot or leg it hurts so bad I've been in bed all day!
