| || | 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.
