Full leg injury


Q: A week ago I had a client at work fall on me and knock me over. It was work related so I went to the hospital and the doctor stated my bones were fine and it was probably ligament damage due to my entire right leg being swollen. He gave me a prescription for ibuprofen and said I should be fine in a couple days. Its been a week now and my femur is a constant 7 on the pain level, my ankle can't handle pressure and my thigh is always sore. I can't see a doctor for another week and want ideas on how to handle this till then. Should this be wrapped? Braced?
