Do you have video of Penny walking without using the limb?

Is it swollen?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I don't. It's not swollen either she just carries her leg when she walks.

The only way to be sure it's broken is to have an x-ray performed. Where it is broken, assuming that it is, will determine what treatment options are available. Not all broken bones will simply fuse with time so it's important to have an examination performed and x-rays to diagnose the issue.

How much does X-rays cost?
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 9 months ago.

Depends on your location. More rural areas may be as cheap is $75 and more urban areas near big cities may be a few hundred.
