Comment from: [email protected], 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: January 12

I am taking Xarelto for thinning my blood. I have an iliac femoral bypass. I slipped getting into tub and my right inside leg slid along the edge of the bathtub. That was a month ago. The bruising is all gone but I have a round golf ball sized hematoma inside my joint beside the knee where you see a bend in the knee. I wonder if I should be seeing a doctor. Unfortunately, I am in Mexico, no health insurance here.
