Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
A soft tissue contusion
takes around 3 weeks to heal and attain its preinjury status. Till that time certain amount of pain, swelling,itching and pin & needle sensations are common.
An xray of the injured part will confirm the presence of a fracture
. If the fracture is not visible properly during the first visit , it should be repeated after 10 days again which will clearly show the fracture lines.
soft tissue damage can only be diagnosed by an MRI
scan of the involved area.
Approach your consultant and discuss the issues.
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
