Day #6 of crutches for me. Big thanks to my wife and family for helping me get around, and just little things that I was taking for granted. Picking up a pile of paper on floor and walking a few steps to put it in the garbage is an ordeal on crutches.
My calf (same side as femoral neck fracture) has beem swollen the past couple of days. I figure it's because it has been hanging because of the crutches and no weight bearing, but I don't want to take chances with any deep venous thrombosis, so I just placed a call to my orthopedic surgeon. Waiting to hear back.
