Thank you for your query.

I would have appreciated if you had uploaded a photograph of the bruise and the surrounding skin for me to give you a better response. You can use the facility available on this site to do so.

A bruise usually disappears in 7-10 days unless it is a large hematoma (collection of blood). If the fluid collection that you describe is indeed hematoma then it should not be drained unless it is interfering or causing other problems. It shall take some time but resolve.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you require any clarifications or would like to add more facts to the case.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.
