Is Post Thrombosis Indicated By Swelling Of Calf Muscle?

I fell very hard onto pavement this past July and calf muscl had. Huge swelled bump. It is still there after 5 months. Is this normal? I saw the dr at the time and called 8 weeks later. They said it takes time. I am worried because my legs also show signs of Post thrombosis.....I had a pulmonary embolism about 18 months ago

Hello,

The hard lump that you can feel can be due to fibrosis or hematoma formed due to the injury. If it is not tender to touch then it is less likely to be related to deep vein thrombosis.

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

Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal, Orthopedic Surgeon
