Brief Answer: No need to rush to ER. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for contacting e again. On sudden bearing of weight if there was no shooting pain or bleeding or bruising in the area then there is no need to worry. Since an internal fixation of the fractured fragments has been done with nailing any damage to the area is not likely. You can mention about this to your orthopedician on your next clinic visit. In case there is a mobility of the fractured fragments shooting pain swelling or skin color changes in the area then an immediate medical attention is needed. I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.
