Bruised leg after an accident. Will taking a flight increase the pain?

Hi, I recently got into a motor bike accident and now am unable to walk on my left foot . I had an x-ray done and was told no bones were broken or fractured. It is now the 3rd day and it is bruising up real badly. I have a holiday booked and I am suppose to be flying out in another 8 days. I want to know if I can still go on my holiday? Will flying in a plane affect my bruising or not? Thank you

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Bruising will not be affected by flying...
Walking could be painful....
Cleanliness, antiseptic, rest to the part, cold compress and ankle support will help to ease
happy holidays...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
