I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriend's injuries. It sounds like the accident was fairly recent. How is he doing? Hope all is getting better and better.
Actually, I don't think his behaviour is really anything to be too concerned about. it really doesn't sound destructive. Maybe he is coping with the injury. I know from the first time I broke the leg (decades ago) that some things do change. Ever since that first break, I've just disliked having my leg touched. Maybe the accident has had a similar type of effect on your boyfriend? I would just ask him specific questions. Maybe--How are you coping? Is there any pain? What/does anything make you uncomfortable in any way? I would also express/verbalize support for his well-being/accomplishments..."It's great that you've...." Maybe just me, but I would avoid the generic questions like "How's the leg?". That one used to irritate me, but maybe because so many people asked it so often.
