Leg update..wow look at that bruise.. Updated

Hello all,how are you today?
My poor hubby has got a lovely bruise coming..and a weird one as well.
Take a look..
 Its turned yellow all the way around his leg and the black bruising on his ankle is all swollen..this is the weird one as the slabs impacted where he is cut and never touched his ankle at all. His leg aches and throbs and he is having to rest it after walking for a while.
 That scab is nasty and has been weeping on and off..i have already told him if it gets any worse he is off to the doctors.

Updated..many many thanks to all of you for the caring and advise and especially to Marie and Lyn who emailed me and when i read them out to my hubby he looked a little sheepish and agreed to go to the doctors..the power the 2 ladies had is awesome so Thank You both of you.
My husband has been and got the all clear,no infection,no fractures or chipping of bones...he does however have serious swelling and it will take a while to go down. As my husband has to take Aspirin everyday as part of his  medication regime apparently he will bruise and bleed more easily and also take longer for the bruises to heal up.
We did the right thing by keeping the open wound clean and also making sure he rested it when he needed to..but the advice is to keep moving it and obviously rest it when he needs too but if it gets no better in a couple of weeks then he has to go back to see her.
All i can say is thank you all so much for the advice and also caring..it means a lot.
