    Anterior distal tibeal physis is essentially the growth plate at the bottom of his shin but the front surface of it. The length in bones comes from this area growing while young and it will fuse as a late teen.

    I'm a vet so all animal experience but I would certainly follow up. If he has damage to the growth plate that causes premature closure it may cause growth problems.

    I'm sorry if this sounds scary (and I would find the idea scary if it was my kid) but I wanted to explain why I think you should check it out.

    Thank you, I showed your post to DH and we are going to organise the MRI sooner rather than waiting another week.

    Just another update: We took DS for the MRI today, they have confirmed that they have found "something" but can't tell us what but suggested we see the doctor tomorrow. Given the scan was late this afternoon we'll go tomorrow afternoon after school. The only hint he gave us was that if DS wanted to do taekwando on Saturday he'd probably be in a funky boot to which DH replied a moon boot and they guy just smiled.

    So hopefully tomorrow we have all the answers or at least more of the answers and know where to go from there.

    Doesn't sound like good news but it seems like you're getting some answers at least. Good luck tomorrow.

    I just saw the updates in here. Sorry to hear he's still having problems. It must be a really small break/fracture if it's hard to see! Hopefully they can fix it simply with a cast/moon boot if it needs to be fixed in some way.

    We went to the doctor on Friday like the MRI place told us but none of our regular doctors were on so we saw someone else. All she did was stumble over reading the MRI report and told us to come back Monday to see his normal GP.

    Anyone know how to read the report if I post a picture of it?

    That would be awesome thank you. Not sure if you can zoom in, I'll give this picture a shot.

    The pic isn't very clear when zoomed.
    The last line talks about a joint effusion in the ankle and somewhere else but I can't read it.
    A joint effusion is excess fluid in the joint. It's pretty painful (I have one in my foot). Can be caused by trauma.
    I had a steroid injection into mine. It made no difference.
    It eventually went away, not sure if the pregnancy caused it to go or it just went.
    Can you retake the pic?
    Oh BTW, I'm a RN, so may be able to interpret it for you.

    I had another look, no fractures, only fluid.
