 Re: open fracture question
Embonious    8:30am Apr 15 2019

Hi Mike,

Yeah, it is pretty bizarre! I think some soft tissue is still damaged- some areas of my leg are still sensitive to the touch, and this area that bruises is really lumpy and can get surprisingly hard if I have a day where I'm on my feet- so it could also be damage caused by a the internal swelling around the break site.
I will bring it up with my PT and the surgeon and report back :)
I hope you're having a decent day!
