So, I got a TV dropped on me today

I was helping my dad move his old TV because he bought a new one. It's a TV from about 10 years ago with the giant back on it and it weighs about 300lbs. Well out the front door is a big step, I go down the step first and he proceeds to drop the TV on my lower leg.

So now my leg hurts in the spot if you touch it or hit it on anything in anyway. But there is no mark or bruise on my leg. I think I may have a bone bruise it sucks heavily. Anyone have any experience with an injury like this and what it actually is?

At least you weren't moving a piano!

That sucks. Might want to get that checked out, could be a bone bruise.

Bummer...

you probably don't want to sue family.

If it continues to hurt you might go and get it xrayed. Could be a bruise or a hairline fracture. Either way, it will hurt for a while.

Yes, I can walk fine. But I'm not sure that would tell me anything your front shin bone is non weight bearing. If I brush it on anything or anything touches it in anyway it hurts like a bitch though.

IMO, you should go to the doctor.

You have that a little backwards. The shin (tibia) is actually the load bearing bone of the lower extremity. The fibula, (smaller and more lateral) is the bone that well.... it just kind of sits there. In another 10 million years or so it will cease to be.*




*my apologies to all you intelligent design folks out there.

Hey that's what I did, I was just asking if anyone would have any idea if I should see a doctor. Me personally, I'd rather avoid seeing a doctor for just about anything.

Careful, skip may hit you with his cane. Or worse, he'll intentionally back into you with his rascal wheelchair. (He removed the alarm that alerts folks he's in reverse. Sneaky sumbitch)

I worked in a electronics warehouse about five years ago and our biggest 36" console was only 240lbs, a new flat screen sony wega does not weigh that much either.. While saying the tv weighs 300lbs sounds great it probably is closer to the 200lb mark..

Sorry about your injury though, I got kicked in the shin pretty f'ing hard during our soccer championship last night...You just have to make sure nothing hits it and let it heal over time... Hopefully nothing got chipped..
