Big Hip Hematoma from Crash question....
Posted August 06, 2002 - 08:42 AM
It's been several months since I had mine....the hip feels normal most of the time (except if i smack into something)...but it still is noticably swollen. Did your body go back to normal eventually, or did you get some kind of permanent scar tissue or something? I'm trying to figure out if I want to go pay the Dr. $100 bucks to tell me "it'll be fine."

Now, if she could use it as "filler" for the dent in my other leg (CR80, same jump, 7 years prior to the 250 crash) then I would consider it!
Good luck and I hope you heal quickly.

ps aspirin is a great idea as it thins the blood and reduces the chances of it clotting, but just think a little about what's going on. If you have a large pool of blood gradually clotting inside you, if one small bit of that clot gets round to your heart...

They have (gave me) medication that will help disolve the blood and make your body absorb it. If it's really big, i would go and get it drained,if it's all ready clotted ask about the meds.
***Also,i broke my pelvis(early 90's)- Go to a sporting good store that sell's football equipment,
and pick up a football girdle!it holds hip and thigh pads,you can get different hip pads that have a hard shell of plastic over the pads,you can take a sledge hammer and not feel a thing! The best thing is that they are cheap! kinda like the V-stop shorts!
