Guiness,

I went down hard on the side of my hip a few years ago. I had a fairly big bulge on the side. It wasn't going down and the doc I was seeing didn't seem too concerned about it. My friend, who is also a doc, knew about what was going on. He suggested I come by and he'd try to drain the area. Virtually nothing came out. Funny thing though, the hematoma(?) started to finally decrease in size after that. Not sure it was do to his needle, or just just started to finally go away.

Funny thing is that it really took about a year before the area started to seem normal again. I guess I had a lot of tissue damage from the fall.

Berck - I spoke to the doc and he said it would require surgery to get rid of the blood that has gathered there. But as long as it doesn't cause me any pain then there is no need to go anywhere near a guy with a knife! Will keep an eye on it and see what happens. Ta, mate.

Hopefully things will get better. Mine took time. The doc that didn't do anything just suggested using a lot of ibuprofen.

Arnica was suggested also. Might give it a go. Ta.
