So I went to the ER Monday night due to an abscess being on my leg, a little above the knee cap where the Muscle is at. Anyways I had it drained and just started taking my medications yesterday evening. The pain is so bad, most times it exceeds a 10. Now I'm wondering should I be walking on it a lot and should I be working? I do work for a Mental Hospital. I just need to know because it's so hard to walk and I'm having trouble sleeping. I can't even bend my leg to put on a sock, it took me 5 minutes to get on a sock. I'm going back for a check up on Thursday but need some advice before then so please help!!
