Ankle bone chip
Hi, I have an ankle bone chip on my right foot. Currently I am wearing orthopedic boot. Its been one week since my injury. 1. Since I can remove my boot before taking shower, is it recommended to pour luke warm water around the affected area? 2. While sleeping with boot, is it recommended to sleep on side( right or left) with pillows under the foot?

You can sleep either way but better to put the non fractured site down. And no effect on the fracture if you put warm or cold water
