Hi, I am in need of some help.
My 4yr old son had an accident at school, another child pushed him over and he fell onto some toys. I do not know the complete details because nobody saw it happen (or told me about it) but he came out that afternoon limping and saying he had a poorly leg. He has no swelling or bruising but is quite a bit of pain and is walking on it though very obviously not normally. Any longer than about 10 steps and he asks to be carried, and he struggles more outdoors.
Yesterday I took him to A&E, they looked at it and as he was walking on it said it was probably soft tissue damage.
He is still limping today, and the pain seems to be more localised to the outer part of the lower leg, about a third of the way down the leg. He is also (though clearly in pain) playing it down, I think he has had enough of being fussed over and is up for a quiet life, but his mood has been terrible and he is very irritable.
What I would like to know is, myself not having had a fracture of any kind I do not know what it feels like. Is there any way he could be walking with a mild fracture? I can't help thinking there is more to it, mothers instinct!
The hospital have said if he is still limping by next Saturday to take him back.
