Patient :My 6 year daughter fell on the sidewalk. She has a bruise on her elbow and there is a hard lump along with it, and what appears to me small red dots up the rest of her forearm. I took her to a walk in clinic. The doctor barely looked at her amd just ordered xrays. He came back after the xrays and wrapped her up in an ace bandage and said to keep it on for a week. And to come back in a week for another xray. My question is why another xray, and also was her right on wrapping her arm, bexause she seems to be in more pain now that its wrapped then she was without it.
