Hi,

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.

Regards,

RKK

I just had a horrible fall that ended up with a subdural hematoma that stopped bledding but now dealing with severe concusiion and [ost concussion issues. I have had previous (3) severe concussions along with major brain surgery. once the bleeding got absorbed by my brain where does it go? is it normal for me to be getting black eyes, slurred speech, and behavorial issues like being edgy, nausea, sleepiness and such? shoudl I be watching things closly?

Hello. I fell and hit my head exactly 2 weeks ago, resulting in a pretty large hematoma. For the most part it has gone away, with just some minor bruising and a small hard lump about the size of a pea left. It is still pretty tender to touch. I've had some minor headaches the last couple of weeks, but no dizziness or loss of conscoiusness. This morning I woke up with a sharp pain in my forehead that lasted about 2 hours, then slowly went away. Do I need to be checked out or is this normal healing for this type of injury?
