I Dropped a 3 Pound Laptop on My Foot. Should I Get an X-Ray?
Published: April 08, 2021
Last night I dropped an almost 3 pound laptop on my foot. At first the pain was really bad, but wore down over the course of about an hour. I have not needed pain meds. But it definitely still hurts and there is small swelling and bruising. I am able to walk, but it is not comfortable. Should I go get an x-ray?
