Hematoma over right buttock

I sustained a hematoma May 4th after falling down the stairs. I have been to the ER twice, 3 orthopedics and 2 PCP's. I have basically been told that there is nothing I can do

Re: Hematoma over right buttock

Sorry to hear about your injury! Did you get an mri or xray ?

Have you thought of seeing a spine specialist?

Depending on the severity of the bruise, the pain should subside over time.

Perhaps since this happened in May, you should see a pain management doctor. Ice also helps a lot.

Re: Hematoma over right buttock

Are you having spine pain due to this fall? Has the hematoma diminished any? When they say there is nothing they can do, what does that mean exactly? I mean about bruise, about your pain, ??

Re: Hematoma over right buttock

It takes a while to go away. The first week in September I got hit in the calf with a baseball. It was a foul ball and I could not move fast enough. I got a bruise that was the size of two baseballs together. It still hurts. It is going on 8 weeks. I still have a small lump under the skin. The dr. said it was a Hematoma and there is nothing I can do about it. Yours is in a rough spot though. I assume sitting hurts. It was scary to look at it. The bruise was five differents colors. My calf still looks swollen. So I think you are in for a long haul. I would just see the dr. if it doesn't go away in time. Hope you feel better.

Re: Hematoma over right buttock

I fell down the stairs in May (9 months ago!!) and landed on my left buttock and had a huge bruise, that took a couple of weeks to disappear. The area was quite swollen and there was quite a large raised area, that I assumed was just part of the bruise, but it's still there! It's about the width of an orange, and sticks out maybe 3/4 of an inch. I think it must be a hematoma, from what you guys are all saying, but will it ever go away?? It's not painful anymore, but a bit uncomfortable, it just feels kinda more solid than the rest of the skin round it. The thing I hate most is that you can see it through some of my clothes, especially lighter trousers and skirts - it sticks out! Is there anything tht can be done to reduce it? Will it ever go away?
Any advice appreciated! Thanks!
