Patient :My husband dropped an 800 pound piece of metal on his leg about 3 1/2 years ago and his thigh is still swollen and hangs over his knee, and causes him severe pain. He went to the ER and they told him to make an appointment with an orthopedic specialist but when I called to make an appointment, I was told that they Dont treat injuries like that. What do we do now?
