I was diagnosed with a bruised bone and have been taking it easy for months and it still hurts what should I do?

I had a MRI done the doctor said it was a bruised bone and said to take it easy so I have. Its been 5 months since and Im stilling having problems. Like if I walk to much it aches and gets stiff and If I sit too long it gets stiff and I can barely walk. And Im 15 years old. The bruised bone was very sever so what should I do? What can I do? Im young and this shouldnt be happening.

I am thinking maybe it is more than bruised. You said it was severe but at 15 you should be seeing some healing. I would see an orthopedist and if you have already seen one, I would get a second opinion. Best wishes.

Try taking some over-the-counter NSAIDs like ibuprofen and acetaminophen to ease the pain associated with the bruise. Bone bruises take some long time to heal, which is why you must rest your leg as much as you can. I would also advice you to visit another doctor for another checkup and diagnose.
