Red face badly bruised shin and swollen ankle

Good morning!

On Sunday (12/31/06) I fell in the shower and totally bruised my shin. I got two lumps from the fall and two heck of a bruise. I put ice on it and napped and took some advil. It was getting better until yesterday, I noticed that my ankle was swollen and it too was bruised. And today it is hard for me to walk because now the shin is hurting and it was not hurting before.

I am open to any suggestion that you may have bout this!

Thank you kindly!

You might have a hairline fracture so, you should see your doctor. I don't want to worry you but, it is a possibility that should be checked out.
