Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has ever had this problem, my 12 yr old son fell on his ankle 7 days ago.. Took him to er and they said it is just sprained...Well 7 days later, his foot is still swollen and very black and blue, almost purple. The er doc told me to keep it wrapped with ace bandage and see how he is in 10 days if he is still complaing get a recheck on the xray...Well this boy is still very sore and swollen..Should I wait or demand a recheck xray now...Even the bottom of his foot is swollen..You cant even see the arch in his foot!!!! The doc told me not to worry..But I am worried...Any advice??? Thanks
I sure as hell wouldn't be wiating any longer - unless of course your son has been doing things (walking etc) that he was told not to do & that is the reason it's not better in which case tie your son down!! Otherwise though insist on another x-ray.
