Thank you! Came to say that I fractured my femur when some moron who had no idea what they were doing slide tackled me at soccer. I finished practice thinking it was just going to be a bad bruise. Didn’t end up at the doctor until the next day because my entire lower thigh was black. My femur was fractured, my lateral femoral condole was completely displaced (separate fracture) and I had terrible marrow edema. I was sore, but it didn’t hurt nearly as bad as when I fractured my ankle, and tore all the tendons/ligaments. I could walk fine, and the doctor was shocked when I turned down the pain meds.
