Thanks for writing to us.
Pain in the leg after a fall is likely to be due to a soft tissue injury due to which he recovered in 5 days. Physiotherapy is advised in case the range of movement around the joints is not complete which must have been noticed by the orthopedician at the time of examination. To lose weight, regular exercise and a low calorie diet is recommended.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
