My dad has a hematoma in his hip...he's eight years old. He's been in severe pain for 5 weeks and has finally been admitted to the hospital. They are trying to manage the pain so they can start pysiotherapy. Why won't they drain it??? The doctors say it's very dad has gone from walking with a walker when it first being totally immobile.

Thanks for posting your query.

The cause of haematoma in his hip seems to be related to myelodysplastic disorder.

MDS, or myelodysplastic syndromes, is a group of bone marrow diseases. In MDS the bone marrow is "injured", that is, loses its ability to produce normal cells of one or more of these types.The bone marrow’s failure to produce normal cells is a gradual process, and the elderly often succumb to other diseases before MDS takes its toll. It is possible, however, that in time the bone marrow will fail completely, making patients unable to fight infection or prevent bleeding.

There are some studies and they found that 98.11% individuals older than 60 who have myelodysplastic syndrome, experienced Haematoma.

On aspiration of haematoma there is further chance of bleeding. That is the reason his doctor won't drain it.

Hope this information helps you.

Good luck -- I hope things go well.
