Yesterday, I slipped on the ice getting into my car, and my left leg slid into the rocker panel of the car pretty hard. Initially there was a lot of pain, but it subsided somewhat. However, when I got home, the leg had started to swell considerably. But there wasn't any pain to walk on it. There is no bruising, just swelling. Today, about 24 hours later, there is some pain, however, I am able to walk on it without any additional pain. The swelling goes down somewhat when I elevate the leg, but gets worse when I stand. Did I break it, or maybe just bruise the bone badly, and need to give it time? I would go for an X-ray if it were any worse, but I really do not want to go to the emergency room and pay that expense, since it is on a weekend. Would it help to wrap it when I have to be on it?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
