Hey, have a question and thought I'd throw it out to the Blogxygeners for opinions.
Remember my little tumble that resulted in a really nasty bruise and scrape? Well, almost a week later, the swelling has not gone down. And it still hurts like all hell, but that doesn't surprise me much, considering it's still bruised. But a few people today were telling me that the swelling should have gone down by now, and that if it hasn't, there's a possibility of maybe having a hair-line fracture, or something? Also, it's still incredibly sore and tender, and I'm not sure how normal that is for going on a week. So, do I go get it x-rayed? Or wait a few days to see if the swelling goes down? Or do I not do anything since the docs won't do anything about a hair-line fracture anyway?
I'm not big on going to the doc, so my first reaction is to just not go and wait for things to heal up, but if I'm like causing damage by not going, then I will. What think ya'llsies?
