  • Chance are that they didint have an ortho dr on call. Did they take xrays and provide him with something fot the pain?? It is true that if the swelling is bad alot of times they will wait until it is down before doing any kind of surgerey.. I had a blow out fracture, which is the bone below your eye.. They did the same thing, took xrays and then gave me a tetnus shot and something for pain and swelling and sent me to a doc the next day, only to have to wait for 10 days to go by and the swelling was all gone.. then I had surgery and , hello!!! the swelling was back.. but I hope they find him a good surgeon. Good Luck and take care of each other!:)
