Customer Question

i got hit with a softball in the shin 11 days ago. My leg, ankle & foot have swelled, the leg & ankle swelling have gone. I still have a knot that is red & raised at point of impact. Now my foot is swelled all the way to my toes and it is bruised there too. I elevate it and have iced it the first 3 or 4 days after injury. Now what, I have been told it will take weeks for the bruising to be completely gone, but the swelling of my foot has me concerned.
