Hi there. I posted on here a few days ago regarding some other questions I have, but now I have a few more...
So, I woke up about 30 minutes ago and went to the bathroom using my walker (I broke my right ankle a little over a week ago, had surgery, in a splint/cast, and am NWB). When I sat down on the toilet (sorry too much info? Lol) I noticed that BOTH of my legs from my lower thigh to my ankle were purplish-red and had white splotches on them. My skin sometimes does that when it’s winter and cold out (I get cold easily) but I’m really not sure why it would happen now? I elevated my legs back in bed again and it seemed to subside. Is that something bad? Has it happened to you?
Now, moving on to the Yellow Skin part... I got back in bed and elevated my legs, and turned on my flashlight to see if the purplish-red color was gone, but instead noticed that the skin under my cast (that is visible) going back to the skin all the way behind my knee is HIGHLIGHTER yellow... Is it bruising? I tried poking it to see if it hurts and it does in some areas, but not in others. What could this be?
Sorry, I seem to worry WAY too much about this stuff.
