Hai Karly,

Thanks for writing in,

From your symptoms, it seems like the boggy swelling you feeling is a hematoma which has started resolving at present. If you are able to comfortable with your day-to-day activities, then it is advisable to apply a crepe bandage over the site, so that the hematoma can resolve faster. If the skin over hematoma shows signs of unhealthiness, then it is better to aspirate the hematoma using a sterile syringe& needle by a surgeon.

Get well soon.
