My daughter fell from a 50 cm high bed on

My daughter fell from a 50 cm high bed on a carpet floor. 3 days later, her mother and I noticed that her right leg was not as active as the left one. Although she wasn't complaining from pain, but it was very clear that she tried to avoid moving her right leg. She is 6.5 months old.

We took her to the hospital and the doctor's first impression was that she is fine, but just in case she will do her an X-Ray. The X-Ray showed she has got a greenstick fracture in the Fumer bone, right above the knee. The orthopaedic specialist in the hospital advised that a cast around both of her legs and her stomach to ensure maximum demobilisation, and a general Anesthesia must be done to her in order to do the cast.

Kindly advise me - according to the x-ray- is it a must to put a full cast or a splint could be an option, and is there a way to avoid the general Anesthesia as she is only 6.5 months old or it is also a must to do a general Anesthesia before doing the cast?
Another important point is that she suffers from eczema and whenever gets hot flare ups appear on her skin and sometimes skin patches, Thank you

my 8 year old daughter fell off her bed and her shin has a very large bump on it. She has stopped crying but says that is still hurting very much. She wont stand on it. And when i was feeling around her leg she says pressure starts hurting about an inch and a half away from the bump. also the bruise appears to be almost grey... any advice?

Hi, My 4 month old daughter fell 50 cms off my bed i called 000 straight away and an ambulance came and we went to hospital and stayed there for 6 hours, then they said she was good to go. They said she has no signs of any real injury, But i just have the worst feeling about it all.She just doesnt seem herself at all. And have just noticed a hard bump at the back of her head down low. I was not in the room at the time so im not sure exactually how she landed. So my question really is would there be any possibilty of long term brain problems. They didnt want to give her any x-rays. Should i take her back there and try to get one and have her checked over again. And also when they were feeling her head would they have felt if there was anything seriously wrong. Thankyou
