Before answering this question, it would be better to define what exactly is meant by the term "upper leg". Orthopaedic surgeons (and others) typically use the term "thigh" to mean the area between the hip and the knee. They use the term "leg" to mean the area between the knee and the ankle. Thus, it is important to specify whether we are discussing pain just below the hip or ...Read more

But 7 days for any injury to the ankle is too soon to worry about it not healing. As far as the difference in opinion from the doctors, have the doctor who told you there is a fracture to go over the x-rays with you and show you exactly where the bone is broken. Then ask the 2nd guy to debunk it. ...Read more
Played hockey. Increased lower back pain during game. Following day cannot bend over. Suggestions other than rest and stretching?
