Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
You should get the x-ray now. A bad fall may cause a hair line fracture or tiny chip of bone fragment. In your age group; osteoporosis is not uncommon which may weaken the bones. So even a trivial trauma may cause bony injury. Thus x-ray is advisable instead of waiting till next week.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.

Sorry I have artificial knees
Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 3 years ago
Do you mean that you have total knee replacement? This involves the artificial knee prosthesis to be fit on the bones. So bony injury can occur on those segments where the artificial knee was fitted. Prosthesis too can break.
It is privilege assisting you.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
