When do you go to the doctor for a bruised butt. ?

Continued pain walk: When you fall on your butt you can break a relatively thin bone on the bottom of your pelvis and still be able to walk, tho with pain. If the pain is not severe, you walk fine and the pain is gone within a week. Most likely you do not have an unstable injury. If you cannot walk or only with severe pain, get an xray asap. A doctor may also want to make sure you do not have blood in your urine. ...Read more

I have a big bruise on my butt. How long after getting bruised til ddimer results go back down? How much would bruise affect the results?

I have a big bruise on my butt. How long after getting bruised til ddimer results go back down? How much would bruise affect the results?

I am 24 and generally a healthy person. I fell down a flight of stairs on my butt and have a huge bruise on my butt. Can I get a blood clot ?

I am 24 and generally a healthy person. I fell down a flight of stairs on my butt and have a huge bruise on my butt.  Can I get  a blood clot ?

Not likely: The huge bruise is blood under the skin - in the soft tissue of the buttocks. Pockets of blood (hematoma) can also form under the skin. The kind of clots most people are concerned about are the ones that can go to the lungs. This is a deep venous thrombosis (dvt). Unless your fall has made you immobile or you have leg swelling on one side, then DVT is unlikely. ...Read more

After sitting in a metal chair with a diamond pattern, my BF got a bruise on his back/butt in the pattern of the chair's holes. Is it a blood problem?

Bruising from chair: Anyone can get minor bruising from a metal chair with a diamond mesh-like pattern. It can happen more easily if someone took aspirin or ibuprofen recently. A blood problem would only be a concern if the bruising was extreme, if the person is taking a blood thinner like warfarin, or if there is a family history of blood problems like hemophilia. ...Read more
