Hematoma on buttocks

This is my very first post and I am a little embaressed but I tried every other website to help me in my situation and I have gotten the exact opposite.

About a week and a half ago (Jan. 12th) I slipped on some black ice and fell down a concrete flight of stairs. The innitial hit was extremely hard and painful. I bruised about 1/2 hour after I took the fall. The bruise/hematoma got worse over a few days, I was very uncomfortable. I took the appropriate measures: rest, heat, cold, anti-inflammitories, etc.

Now, the bruise is just about gone, I am feeling much better, BUT I now have a long, hard lumpy spot just above where it hit. And the area in which I fell onto is now concaved in. I have a long hole in my right buttocks, right below my back. The tissue obviously shifted.

Is there ANYTHING I can do to fix this? Or, at least, make it a little less noticeable? I'd really appreciate any suggestions. Thanks a lot.

Re: Hematoma on buttocks

I'm sorry to say it can take months for a bad hematoma to go away. You can have it surgically removed or drained by a doctor. The "ripple" effect in your skin should go away once the pressure is off.

You may want to get an x-ray to be sure there is no micro-fracture. Lumps sometimes form after fractures.
