I fell down 2 steps today. Even though the pain was INTENSE, I was sure it was a sprain. My best friend convinced me to go to urgent care to have it examined. The doctor was sure it was just a severe sprain, but I wanted x-rays done anyway. It turned out to be a fracture of the Fibula (small bone in my lower leg). They sent me to the emergency room, where it was splinted. I have to call the orthopedic doctor tomorrow. At best he will cast it, at worst, I will need surgery. I'm expecting the best because I'm a 'glass is half full' kind of person.
This is the first time I have ever had to go to the emergency room (for myself).
My poor son - I have run him ragged fetchin' me my 'stuff', lol
