Huge bruise, bone swollen after hitting shin hard. Another bruise in same area. What is it?

I hit my shin really hard like a month and a half ago, and I had a huge bruise and the bone got swollen some with the time all that went away. Now I have a bruise not too big or swollen but it looks like a bruise in the same area where it was the first time. What could this be? Or could it be something related to the original event still?

It seems that there might be some infection in shin of tibia called
osteomyelitis, giving rise to this problem on old hit area.
Go for x-ray shin of tibia and rule out infection.
If require consult orthopedic surgeon and get examined.
Ok and take care.
