Dr. looked at the x-ray and said he didn't see anything broken, but would wait for a report from the radiologist. We got it in the mail and it says:
"A 4 mm well corticated bone nodule adjacent to the tip of the lateral malleolous is thought to be a supernumerary bone."
Then states the results will be discussed at the next appt. (which we haven't made yet, I am calling tomorrow).
X-ray was done because the ankle was sprained 4 weeks ago, and didn't go to the doc, because usually they don't do anything for sprains. So, now there is still pain/swelling, that's why the x-ray was done. Any idea what the report means?
