Swell! Swelling!

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.
