How long after a bone is broken does it start to re-mend itself?
1. HI FLUTHER IVE MISSED YOU
2. importantly: the night of my 21 birthday i broke my foot, pretty badly apparently. it was swollen and blue for a while but it never really hurt so i didnt see a doctor. plus we were traveling and though i looked, i couldnt find anyone. anyhow, so that was july 9. i just went to the doctor monday and found out it was broken. i now look at the x ray and cringe terribly. it’s also displaced, meaning it isn’t lined up with itself so i may have to have surgery but i dont find out til tomorrow. anyhow, i’m just curious, really…it has hurt worse the past few days than it did the first week and a half and my boyfriend suggested as a possibility that maybe it has started growing back together and i’m now aggrivating it. thoughts, opinions, sympathy? jk.
on a side funny note, i did not know i had even hurt it until the morning after when i ran to the bathroom at 6 am to vomit and thought WTF, MY FOOT IS THE SIZE OF A BLIMP. it was bad.
