So last week I took a mighty fall and ended up coming down hard with my tennis shoe heal making contact to the left side of my groin and the crease of my thigh. The end result was a knot the size of a cantelope from the initial area and thru to my backside.
Someone recommended ACV and to even add onions. So I'm sitting here with all this in a washcloth soaked in acv/onions, and cotton, and a papertowel trying to get to this bruise down.
I was kept overnight at the hospital 2 nights for this and it's still the size of a grapefruit. Can anyone give me any further advice, like how long I sit like this per sitting, do I rotate with an ice pack? This this the most painful thing I've ever done to myself! Any help is appreciated!
I had a huge hematoma on my left shin from a bad fall last year. My Physiotherapist said it was the largest hematoma he had ever seen and was not responding to treatment as it should. He then suggested to me to go home and buy some big fresh dark green outside leaves of a cabbage, smother my hematoma with Voltaren cover over with the cabbage leaf and then wrap in plastic or glad wrap as we call it here. I did this every night and it shrunk in size amazingly everytime I did it. Only at night when you go to bed though it does not work as well during the day but could try it. I must tell you the doctor who sent me to the physio was absolutely amazed how this worked on my hematoma when traditional methods had failed and also can I say saved me from an operation where I would have probably been left with a rather large dent in my leg!

I have a calcified hematoma. I have heard DMSO can disolve calcified hematomas. Is that true and is it safe to use on people?
