Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
From the description of symptoms, I think that you have sustained a SOFT TISSUE HEMATOMA
. This usually takes around 3 weeks to resolve completely.
The general management guidelines for hematoma are as follows -
* Rest to the injured part and dont involve in activities which puts additional strain on the injured tissues.
* Ice packing should be applied for about 20 minutes once in every 2 hours.
* Use elastic compression bandage around the swollen area
* Elevation of the limb
& anti inflammatory medications
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
