I had back fusion surgery on three levels in my lower back 46 days ago. I was released after spending four days in the hospital with a very large hematoma the size of a large melon on my side, at the entry site for the surgery. I was told this would dissipate in about six weeks internally by itself. Because I have had to wear a back brace, and will continue to wear this brace for at least six more weeks, the incision was not able to heal. I had to have home nurse care as the hematoma slowly bled out as it was forced to be pressed down into my body. At this time the hematoma has gone down to the size of an apple and the incisions have healed. So now I hope that the rest of this mass does continue to dissipate as it was supposed to do from the beginning. And I am also past the six week time frame that I was given that it would take to dissipate..

I am on warfarin and was having acupuncture for restless legs syndrome. My INR (international normalization ratio) went up and I had a bleed forming a hematoma in my left leg. This was at the site where they always put the needles. I also have a lump on top of my skull where they put the needles and for the last several weeks I have been having a lot of neck pain..
