Hey guys, noticed my previous thread was locked so couldn't ask there but I was told today that my father fell and hit his leg under the knee area pretty bad yesterday. It's to the point he hasn't been able to get up all day today. AT ALL. He couldn't even get up to use the restroom and resorted to bed side supplies....
I stopped by to take a look and his left leg is a bit swollen and somewhat discolored with very visible bruising in some areas. It hurts to the touch and he can not put any pressure to walk.
My question is, the fall/hit didn't seem to be so sever to cause this much damage. Is this in anyway related to his current illness? As in, is there more bruising, longer recovery times, some type of blood issue? I am not sure if this is a bad bruise that will heal or if I should be taking him in to the ER or at the very least a Dr.
