Left Buttock pain. I have just turned 66. I am

Left Buttock pain. I have just turned 66. I am currently employed as a 8th grade teacher at a urban Catholic school. Our school building is 85+ years old and has no elevators or A/C. That being said I was congratulating myself on my knees being better to climb the stairs. However, I have had a rather nagging butt ache, left buttock radiating to the center of the thigh about three inches down. I haven't fallen. I work to keep my magnesium, niacinamide levels up. I confess I am and always have been awful at exercising. I do not now nor have I ever smoked. Yes, I am overweight and have been overweight since childhood. 5'3" 225. I am taking 25mg of Lozartan Potassium. I take responsibility for stress eating - weight has been constant at 220 to 227 for the past two years. I do not have heartburn, I don't get many headaches, I will have some asthma symptoms due to allergy in spring and fall. I hate hot weather especially with high humidity. Nov. 12 will be 10 years since I had a complete hysterectomy with removal of ovaries - Uterine Cancer. I had postoperative abscesses, one was infected. I had radiation for 8 week (I think 8) that's all clear. I have fore foot problems not caused by diabetes. I had veins stripped in 1990 - which I have since regretted because since then my ankles swell.

My husband, who is on blood thinners because of an artificial aortic valve, fell off his bike last Sunday. he landed on his left butt cheek which swelled up an he was in a lot of pain. He did go to the Dr on Monday and had an xray to make sure that nothing was fractured. The results were negative. Just a huge hematoma. No bruising until Tuesday. He has been icing it and trying to stay off his feet but he still goes into work. The swelling has gone down a little but today I noticed that the bruising is moving down his leg, And now his calf, ankle and foot are swelling and turning blue & purple. He is still in a lot of discomfort. Is this normal or should I be taking him into the Dr again?

I have a very painful lump on my left butt cheek. It has grower very large and starting to turn a little purplish color. It is very difficult for me to sit down and I feel pain when ever I touch it. I have been putting a hot rag on it but the pain is growing worse. What could this be?
