Please help!!!!! About 5 weeks ago Monday I had a soccer accident I was kicked directly on the growth plate and it is very swollen and the bone is sticking up at a point I am in alot of pain and my doctor gave me a walking boot about 3 weeks ago and then I saw an orthopedic doctor and he took x-rays and said since it's not a complete Bone yet that it would only show up on an MRI. It's pricy so he said if it wasn't better by monday that thats what he would do so I have 4 days until my mom is gonna take me I am in sever pain the boot wasn't working so I am now on crutches. Do you think I should convice my mom to take me to the ER for a cast?
