 Re: I fell today and my leg hurts a little worse. Advice?
SBH    1:12pm Jan 31 2018

It is always a good idea to get things checked out; if for no other reason so you don't worry about it. I fell twice while wearing a full leg cast. The first time was when I was learning to crutch. Fell so hard that I knocked things out of line and had to have a realignment. The next time no problem, just a sore me and a sore leg. From my experience I would say if it quits hurting you are probably ok, but if not you may need a tune up. Sorry to hear of your fall; its really scary to be stuck on the floor; I had a similar experience when I fell. I couldn't figure out how to get up without putting weight on my broken leg.

9/4 FX of 5th metatarsal, fibula and tibia-- splinted
9/15 Full leg plaster cast
12/26 short leg cast NWB
1/22 cast with a heel (FINALLY!)
