Customer Question
I fell 10 hours...

I fell 10 hours ago, I hit my head on a cabinet, it's a bit swollen, also my back got bruised and is black and blue, it's a little stiff, probably from the bruise, I also went down on my hip, which has been replaced, it was pretty swollen last night, and is also black and blue, I put ice on my head and hip last night.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

For 10 hours

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have weak bones and had several breaks

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.

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.
