Should I go to a doctor? (Really bad bruise)?
I fell down the stairs at a New Year's party.... received a really huge, really swollen bruise on my outer thigh. It is about the size of my hand and is noticeably swollen even with my pants on. It's very dark purple, almost black. I'm wondering if this is something I should see my doctor for? Or should I just ice it? It hurts like a mother! Thanks for any advice!

Btw, I also bruised my back and my ribs are sore. I can barely touch any of the bruises, because they're so painful. I'm pretty sure I didn't break or fracture anything, though... think I would know if I did. :-)

You have a REALLY bad bruise. Let it go for now, keep icing it, etc. If it gets worse over the next couple of days, then go get it checked out.


Name here!!!

I think you should b/c that sounds really bad. I would go to a doc if i were you.

you should go to a doctor because a friend of mine got a bruise also some years ago and she didn't go to the the doctor and now she have mark where the bruise use to be, so you should go to see a doctor.

OMG, I totally feel your pain! I did the SAME THING several years back. I slipped in vomit at the top of a stairwell and fell all the way down the steps carrying a 30 lb amplifier on my chest. I went to the doctor for a MASSIVE bruise that went from my upper hip all the way down my thigh. They insisted on doing x-rays because they couldn't believe I'd not fractured anything. I hadn't and was fine. If you're postive nothing's fractured then I'd say just take it easy. Soak in a bath of epsom salt to help with the pain. My vote is not to bother with the doc if you're absolutely positive nothing's broken or fractured.

Yes you should go to the doctors. Better safe than sorry.

Fractures are not always obvious. For example, you can still walk with a fractured bone in your leg, but it can get worse. You should see a doctor and get some X-rays especially of your ribs. Why take a chance that something serious has happened to you?


MARCELA
well you should go just in case something is fractured, i had a bruise just like yours...the size of my hand and it was almost black, it did hurt really bad but it went away after a while...but yeah you should go to the dr's just in-case something is wrong! if not just ice it.


debs
Doesn't sound like a fracture so there's not much a doc can do. Ice it carefully, up to 15 mins at a time for the next few days till the swelling goes down, then you can use cold and heat alternately to stimulate the circulation. Homeopathic Arnica is great for injuries and bruising - you can buy it at Boots and take 1 tablet 3 times a day. While you're at Boots, get some WitchHazel to bathe it with or use as a compress, these should help reduce pain too. Vitamin C helps the body to heal tissue so really up your intake of fresh fruit and veg, or take as a supplement, 1gm a day is a very safe limit, many people take more.
Good luck!
