Knee injury hematoma

Common Questions and Answers about Knee injury hematoma


Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. hematoma for around 3 weeks after injury is not considered normal, and development of another hematoma after such a long period of trauma is also not normal. Is there any pain, decreased range of motion etc? It is difficult to say what it is without physical examination and x-rays. Common possibilities could be infection, baker’s cyst, hemarthrosis. Consult a orthopedician for further assistance. Best.
Avatar n tn There has been no injury of anykind to that breast. What can cause a spontaneous hematoma like that? Now the entire top of my breast is purple and blue with a lump the size of a quarter and there is more discomfort in the area of the lump. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Knee pain after injury can be due to a number of reasons, but localized tenderness with swelling can occur due to a hematoma or a collateral ligament injury. A ligament injury to the knee is usually painful at rest and may be swollen and warm. The pain is usually worsened by bending the knee, putting weight on the knee, or walking. Rest, immobilization, ice packs are the initial measures to be taken in any kind of knee injury.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had a hematoma in the right shin area from an injury during a karate tournament 30 some odd years ago. Now, x-rays show a kind of bend in the leg (not sure what they termed it as medically), and I have tremendous pain sometimes in that shin and actually, from the top of the foot to the knee, especially on bending but also just standing. Any suggestions as to what is going on here, and how to proceed, who to see? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Due to the injury to your knee, bruising or contusion, wherein capillaries and sometimes venules are damaged. This leads to blood seeping into the surrounding interstitial tissues ( hematoma) and accumulation of serous fluid in connective tissue (edema). Prepatellar bursitis or inflammation of the bursa, a padlike sac found in areas subject to friction was also seen.
Avatar n tn About 30 days ago at a waterpark, a the heel of a man's foot came down on my left shin about 1/3 of the way down from my left knee. It was a most painful injury, and immediately began to swell and show slight bruising. It was very sore for about two weeks, though I didn't notice it much unless I touched or bumped it accidentally. Now, about a month later, the soreness is almost completely gone, but I have a huge knot on my shin bone in the place where the injury occurred.
Avatar n tn I ignored the injury for two months despite pain and discomfort. After two months, I decided to let it heal and not play at all. I used Lasonil cream for a week. It seemed to be helping a little as I regained full movement of my leg, however the swelling remained but kept decreasing. Then I bought Arnica cream and it seemed to have stopped my healing process as I lost again my leg movement and pain came back. It does not seem to be improving.
Avatar m tn Almost a year and a half ago my boyfriend started to experience chronic knee pain. In February of last year he had a knee surgery to remove a hematoma and clotted blood and dead tissue. Since that surgery his knee has only gotten worse. He has been to every specialist you can think of and has been on extremely high amounts of pain medication with no relief.
Avatar m tn I am sorry to hear about your brother’s medical problems. Given that he had subdural hematoma and diffuse axonal injury, he has made excellent recovery. The return of memory and cognitive skills, and the extent of return depends on the degree of diffuse axonal injury. This is because this type of injury affects the white matter tracts responsible for carrying and processing signals. Please discuss this in detail with a neuro-psychiatrist assessing your brother’s case. Take care!
Avatar n tn Now, both are healed (mostly) but after the bruising went down, I asked my doctor about the weird lump that is slightly painful to the touch located on the front and 8 inches up from my knee. Above it is a significant divot, or valley, or whatever. Doc says I got hit so hard it displaced the fat on my leg, forcing it downwards. PT guy said that it would go away after a while. OK, so the lump is smaller, but the divot is still there, and I was wondering -- has anyone heard of this before?
1415174 tn?1453246703 I couldn't walk on it for about 3 weeks due to very sharp stabbing pain. The ortho specialist doctor in Spain examined the knee and said it was a hematoma and contusion. I was supposed to be able to walk on it after 7-10 days. When we flew home after a week I got 2 blood clots. My leg was so swollen it hurt too much to walk. So that may have made it worse to heal. The clots are now gone.
Avatar m tn Hello, This bruise needs to be evaluated as soon as possible as it looks like the hematoma has calcified. A hematoma is formed because of blood trapped in tissues. This blood may need to be drained. Less commonly, it may develop calcium deposits at the injury site and this may need further evaluation. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar m tn Didn't pay much attention to it since then other than a hematoma, but last Friday palpated about 2 inches distal to the hematoma and noted a tubular shaped hard mass running along the superior and anterior edges of the medial malleolus. It is medial to the anterior tibialis tendon and seems to be in the exact location and orientation of a vein on my other foot; I think it's the saphaenous vein, but it not compressable. It is hard for about 1 1/2 inches and when pressed on moves side to side.
Avatar n tn Hello! Bruise is an inflammation externally, and hematoma can occur within muscles by some fibres splitting and blood to pool and finally in formation of a hematoma which normally absorbs by itself. It is normally self limiting. It may take couple of weeks sometimes. You have to confirm this near an Orthopedician that it is a hematoma. It can also be a lump but that would not be connected with your injury and for this go for a consultation. Take care!
202827 tn?1238014289 Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The swelling above the knee could be a hematoma, bursitis, arthritis, or muscle injury or due to deep vein thrombosis. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. An X-ray or CT scan can tell for sure what swelling is. Your mother would need to consult an orthopedic specialist. There is no way she can treat this at home. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Hi, Yesterday while playing flag football, as I was going to tackle a guy I twisted my left knee and fell straight to the ground. It was quite painful initially but after a few seconds I was able to get up and limp off the field, as I limped away the pain went away but I was stil limping and there was a little pain sometimes, I had to drive home(stick shift) and it was quite painful. I was able to walk if I kept my left knee from moving, I couldn't straighten it anyway it was too swollen.
Avatar f tn Right knee arthroplasty post-op quad musclesdeficit by Katy890, 19 minutes ago I have just had 2 total knee replacements 2 months apart. First knee recovery went fine. With second knee, I have 118 degrees of flexion and 12 degrees of extension. My problem is that I am having serious femoral nerve pain ever since my 2nd operation 3 weeks ago today. It radiates into greater trochanter area of right hip and down my leg -- sometimes going down into the mid-calf area.
Avatar n tn My husband who is 70 had a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago and the pain seems to be intensifying rather than diminishing. He had a childhood injury to this knee, then another operation 13 years ago but is crying with the pain most of the time and has gone from ordinary pain killers to needing morphine. He has physiotherapy 3 times per week, also hydrotherapy and acupuncture, they all say he is making some progress but very slowly and keep telling him exercising will relieve the pain.
Avatar m tn Hi! The left elbow and knee could be hurting because of the injury you were involved in. The knee and elbow injury may not have been noticeable in the face of the head injury. It could also be reactive arthritis due to the trauma or a flare of rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Please show this to your doctor for further evaluation and treatment. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn Hi there. This could be a hematoma, caused by local blood vessel injury. The nerve-supplying buttock or the sciatic nerve could have become damaged and therefore there is shooting pain starting from the hip to knee. You need to undertake an EMG and Nerve conduction study to check the status of whether there has been any damage to the nerve or the muscle. Your clinician is the best judge of your condition once this detailed examination is done. Take care.
Avatar m tn I walked into a large rock while fishing and my knee swelled freakishly large. The Doctor at the ER did not drain it for fear of infection, etc.. He said it would go down in a week or two and things would be back to normal. It has been almost 3 weeks and my knee is better, the swelling is down, but there is still restriction in movement. There is also some pain (about a 2 to 3 out of 10) and discomfort. I can walk now without a limp, but with stairs I struggle some, especially going down.
Avatar n tn Hi, My daughter 25 injured her knee wakeboarding last Monday. We are waiting to see an orthopedic doctor but I have a question. Xrays show no broken bones and she has no pain in ankle area however her foot is swollen. Because of this Wednesday they gave her a blood thinner in case of blood clot in leg but ultrasound didnt show any. Now she gets nausious and sometimes lightheaded. Is this a normal side affect or could it be a side affect from the blood thinner?
Avatar f tn My left leg (just below the knee) sustained a scrape the size of a dime, which rested in the center of a tennis ball sized hematoma. The hematoma became infected. The doctor cut open the dime sized scab in order to drain the hematoma, as he said the infection would have a greater chance of surviving if the hematoma wasn't drained in addition to taking the antibiotics that he prescribed. I have been on antibiotics for a month.
672923 tn?1225911965 I now have a rather large lump there that is rather painful, inside of my leg, side of knee. Is this something I should worry about?
Avatar f tn The swelling was larger than my knee and stuck out more towards my outer leg. I followed RICE over the next day and a half, but it kept swelling and the bruise going darker, which I expected. Now, the swelling has gone down a lot along with the bruising. The area is red now and hard as a rock but is still very tender. I did not at any time have any problems bearing weight on this leg or walking.
Avatar m tn During the second week of the injury, I became aware of the hematoma and started rubbing it vigorously to try to break down the tissue. Now, the hematoma has more or less subsided but there is discoloration under my eye and on the side of my cheek from rubbing. Will these eventually go away, or are these permanent? Also, exactly how prevalent is heterotopic ossification? I did some research online, and it seems that it occurs almost exclusively with spinal cord injuries. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I got a very bad bruised just above my right knee in may I went to the doctors a few weeks later because from about where the bruise was just above the knee down had swollen up they tested me and did a2 ultrasounds and ruled out any blood clots.But Its been 4 months and about once a day from about half way up my thigh down my leg gets very swollen and it feels like the skin is going to rip open its not sore just not fun, I have looked into it but I don't have any other symptoms no rash nothing .
Avatar m tn I was in a martial arts class and sustained a contusion to my outer thigh, approx. 5 inches above my knee. The trama was severe enough that I could not stand for several minutes and then could only, barely, limp around. For the first several days, only the point of impact was painful. After about a week, the pain started spreading across both my anterior and posterior thigh muscles.

Avatar n tn I have had a MRI on my knee and Quad both coming out negative and not even showing fluid. I have seen 2 doctors and neither knows what is going on. I know something isn't right as this hurts constantly. I have tried physical therapy for 4 weeks and strengthening and not doing anything as well and nothing has worked. Always is the same constant dull pain whether sitting or standing. Any help would be appreciated.
