Hi, Mazejohn,
Thanks fr query.
It seems you might have fracture at elbow joint with hematoma.
Go for X ray elbow and find out the problem.
At your butt it seems that you might have injury due to hard impact on the part.
Take pin reliever medicine as and when required.
Ok and bye.

Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
yes, you should do an Xray to look for fracture/ dislocation.
can take simple pain killers like acetaminophen till then.
pl. see an ortho doc , if a fracture looke likely.

take care and keep me posted on your progress.
