First let me tell you I am not the average 80 year old. I semi-retired when I was 78 and have almost completely retired now. I just tripped and fell and boy, did it hurt! It still does. It happened on 9/18/17, I was in Tennessee for a wedding, so called ambulance. Response was almost immediate and everyone involved in this was more that wonderful. It's now that I cannot sleep in the sling but what I have been doing to help the pain is to use Biofreeze. It has helped but then I got a little scared thinking what if it's not good for this type of injury. I can’t see my orthopedic doctor here in Florida until Thursday unless someone cancels their appointment.
