Comment from: Hi there, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: May 25

We were at the airport ready to leave. My husband assembled my new scooter and I thought it was ok. I got on it and realized I was rolling backward. I screamed for help, but too late. Scooter and I fell off a 10-inch curb and landed full force on my right hip, shoulder and elbow. For our 8 day cruise, I had such a hematoma it covered my entire hip and buttock and wrapped a quarter way around to the front. It was very painful and prevented me from sleeping. The skin got quite taught and was hard as a brick. It's the eleventh day now and it still covers about the size of two handprints. It still hurts if I touch it, but I made it through our cruise anyway.

I was in a motorcycle accident, it was an occurrence due to failure of the rear tire while making a turn on a residential street. I basically did a full body slam on my right side onto the gutter, curb, and sidewalk with the bike slamming down on top of me resulting in a dislocated shoulder, and taking a thirty mph punch to the abdomen by the curb into soft area between the ribcage and pelvic area. I am very lucky nothing was broken or ruptured, however I had massive bruising that upon dissipation resulted in a very large hematoma over my right hip at the belt line. It has been six weeks and I see no shrinkage as of yet. I have been told that nothing can be done. I really need some sort of idea how to make this thing go away, it has increased my waist size from 34 to 44 on one side. If I find a solution I will post again.
