@Telsyst - There are some cases where, in a leg injury, you have a 'no pressure' order from your doctor. This is the worse thing. With a regular break you can limp a little on your leg, with a 'no pressure' order, you can't even do that.
You spend most of the time sitting up in a chair or laying in bed or on a couch. Often the injury is painful so you spend some time laying down to get off the sore leg.
