I was assualted around 3 weeks ago During the assult


Q: I was assualted around 3 weeks ago. During the assult my foot was stepped on (the attacker had boots on and I had flip flops). My foot was swollen and badly bruised, after a week I worked up the courage to go to the ER. They did a CT on my neck since that was my main complaint and it checked out okay. They documented my bruises, but there were no images taken of my foot. It's been 3 weeks, there is no swelling but still some bruising. When I feel the top of it, there is an obvious bump that has not gone away and is not on my other foot. The only time it hurts is when I push on it or when I stand on my "tippy toes" to get something. Should I be concerned?
