Unhappy Has anyone bruised a bone??

I bruised my ankle bone (the inner one known as the Tibia) a week ago. I went to get into my friends truck and smacked it right up against the side. I went to the doctor after I couldn't take the pain anymore (I thought I fractured it) and the doctor said I bruised it up really nicely, I hid the tendon and an artery so it's all bruised. It hurts SO bad! Now I know why people say bruising a bone is sometimes worse than breaking it. My doctor said that cold and hot is worthless and wouldn't do anything and putting it in a cast would probably hurt more than help. Even just running a towel over it kills. He told me to keep off of it for a couple weeks but there's no way I can do that, I have to work. So, has anyone bruised a bone? It would help to hear that I'll get better in time...no matter what position I have it in it hurts so bad and having a sneaker on aggravates it.

I'm so sorry to hear about your injury! It seems to me like they could put a brace or something on it to at least protect it from further injury or give it some support.

Thanks DQ! Well he said it wouldn't do much because it would probably aggravate it even more since having any pressure on it kills. I can't believe this happened over something stupid.lol

Are you taking anything for the pain?

OUCH! I have a pretty high pain tolerance, but that sounds like it HURTS! When I was eight I had a bruised growth plate, believe me, that hurt. Hate to say it, but it didn't get better for a long long long time.

Hope your OK!

Thanks doggyhog! I'm taking 800mg's of motrin 3 times a day and it doesn't really do much. I think I have a tolerance to it because I used to take it all the time for my back pain. I have vicodin and perkocet but I don't want to take those unless I'm in unbearable pain. I have a pretty high pain-tollerance because my back is hurting me 24'7 but this is literally a "deep bone" pain.

Maybe take the Vicodin or percocet at night to make you more comfortable to sleep. I took darvocet when I had knee surgery but basically took the meds at night so I could sleep better.

I was going down the stairs to ask my BF something and my foot slipped out from under me and I landed HARD on my tailbone and it hurt so bad I flipped forward into a fetal position (thank god I was on the second to last stair and we have a carpetted staircase that winds in a semi circle instead of strait down) and I think I freaked out my BF so much cus I couldn't say anything cus I was in such pain and he kept going "are you all right? are you all right?" and all I wanted to do was go "be quiet and wait till I can freaking talk again for me to answer!!" but it hurt too much haha. whats worse was we were having a mini blizzard and he was like "if we need to go to the hospital it would be the worst time but i can take you" haha. I think I was in shock for a while there cus I couldn't stop shaking and I don't know if I ever did just bruise it or have such a small fracture it felt like a horrible bruise. It took a long time about a month to completely go way. or well, heal rather :P

That sounds so painful TPF! I don't think you want to know how they fix fractured tailbones. It makes me cringe just thinking about it. I love what guys come out and say. Sometimes I laugh, other times I just want to smack my boyfriend silly.haha When I keep off of it it doesn't hurt as much but when I come home from work like now, it throbs like crazy because I've been on it all day. Stupid ankle.lol

My daughter bruised her shin bone and it hurt for MONTHS and occasionally still hurts. We finally had to do surgery because there was an abscess too - she loves the nice scar - so I completely understand your pain.
