Hello,

You might have developed a hematoma. There is possiblilties for active bleeding as you are on blood thinners.

Consult an orthopaedician and plan for an MRI scan. The warfarin has to be stopped to prevent the bleeding after discussing with your cardiologist.

Hope I have answered your queries. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
