Question: I had a horse run over me after falling to the ground. He stepped mainly on the inside of left thigh. This happened on Sunday. I have been icing it but there is a hematoma the size of a grapefruit on left inside thigh and the entire leg from knee up is swollen with a very large bruise on inside thigh. I didn't go to a doctor because I thought they would tell me to do what I am already doing. Do I need to go to a doctor? I am able to walk on it....Sunday I couldn't put any weight on it. What should I be doing?
