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 fell straight on my butt roller skating and bruised my tailbone and I has sex a couple days ago and it was painful?

Coccyx: The coccyx is a cartilage structure at the tip of the sacrum (tailbone) and when that is injured it becomes very uncomfortable and unfortunately the discomfort may last week's to months. If you continue to have very severe pain and tenderness, the tailbone probably should be xrayed, however. Discuss this with your physician as needed. Cold applications for 48 hours and hot applications after help. ...Read more

Fell down 8 stairs \u0026 landed on my butt 4 days ago. Bruise has gotten progressively larger everyday. Swollen under bruised area. Should I see a doctor?

Fell down 8 stairs \u0026 landed on my butt 4 days ago. Bruise has gotten progressively larger everyday. Swollen under bruised area. Should I see a doctor?

Yes, use iced packs: Whenever there's trauma involved, and you're seeing a bruise that continues to get larger, it's probably a hematoma, or third spacing of the blood pooling underneath that's causing it to swell. I'm sure it's painful, or uncomfortable, and you need to call your pcp right away. You need to be seen, and this area needs to be examined. In the meantime, it's always wise to ice the area often with cold compresses to help reduce the swelling. ...Read more

Could I have a blood clot if I fell down stairs, have a bump on my butt, feel faint, big bruise covering my whole cheel chest pain, difficult to walk?

Probably not: Typically, blood clots in the veins are associated with inactivity, not trauma. A DVT usually gives you leg swelling and a "charley horse" feeling deep in the muscle of the calf. The bump on your butt could be a blood clot in the soft tissues (hematoma). The chest pain could be a chest wall contusion (bruise) or even a rib fracture. I suggest you get checked out by your doctor. ...Read more

I fell pretty hard the other day and now my left butt cheek hurts. No bruise just pain, walking, sitting. Is it all muscle or is it broken bone?

Bruise, probably: If you can bear weight, it is probably just a bruise. Barring something really rare, it is pretty hard for a young person to break your hip or your pelvis in a simple fall from the standing position. If the pain is not a lot better in a few days, get an x-ray. ...Read more
