Ulna bone injured. X-ray showed presence of bump. Taking ibuprofen 800mg. Any advice?

I injured my ulna bone on New Year s Day. I was accidentally hit by a door pretty hard. I thought it was broke at first but it stopped hurting after an hour or two with an ice pack. I had an X-ray today 1/14/13 which revealed no fx but I have a hard 1/2 long narrow bump still. Dr put me on 800 mg of ibuprofen 3xd for inflammation x 10 days. Wouldn t the swelling be down by now? Why is there a weird bump still?

Thanks for writing to us.
The bump[ that you have is suggestive of a hematoma due to the bleeding caused by the soft tissue injury. You can use a brace to give adequate rest to the injured area after consulting your orthopedician. Do continue taking pain killers as advised.
