Customer Question

I took a very bad fall, face first, into bedpost and pine trunk..Thank goodness I had my glasses on, left eye was very swollen, cheek and face..Had chest and facial x-rays next am.. It has been 7 days and bruises are getting better, but have a swollen area on cheek that is so sore to the touch, even to take a shower.. Should I be concerned about the swollen knot on my face.. X-rays showed no broken bones, but it is still very painful..
