On 11/29 a heavy (200-300 lb) metal plate was dropped on my husband's foot, about at the arch. He was taken to a local doctor (friend of employer ?). His foot was xrayed, but the doctor could not determine if it was broken. He was sent home, told to keep his foot elevated and iced, a radiologist would look at the xray the next morning and let him know if it was broken. When no one called my husband the next day, he called the doctor's office, was told his foot was not broken and come in to the office on Monday (12/2). He went to the office; the doctor hardly looked at this foot and gave him a 'return to work' slip to return to work on Tuesday (12/3). His foot has turned all colors of purple from bruising, but there is still a lump on his foot. It is rather red and the redness radiates out from it. He said it was soft, but it has now become a hard lump. His foot is still sore. Does this sound normal for an injury like this? He is afraid to get a second opinion due to possible retaliation by his employer.
