Mild bone fracture in lower leg
My kid is 5 years. Today while playing in swing, she fell down and sat on leg while falling down. She cried a lot in pain. We rushed to hospital and took x ray. He told mild fracture (20 percent) in left lower leg. Doctor had put dressing in lower leg till thighs. How long will it take for the bone to set? Also Doctor said, she must make movement in her toes else there may b blood clot. But how s it possible if the kid is sleeping. Please guide us what are the precautionary measures. What to do and what not to do. I am attaching the x ray
