What is the difference between a hematoma and an ordinary bruise? Are they pretty much the same? Any difference in healing time?

What is the difference between a hematoma and an ordinary bruise? Are they pretty much the same? Any difference in healing time?

Sort of: A bruise is a mild collection of blood in the tissues which come out of the surrounding tissues and superficial vessels where we have been traumatized. They are sort of a hematoma but when we think of a hematoma it is usually a larger collection of blood which forms a swollen area and can be painful or even get red or have other problems. This is a simple explanation and hope this was informative ...Read more

Does the efficacy of a particular electroconvulsive therapy session get impacted if the body is healing from a cut or a bruise at the same time?

Does the efficacy of a particular electroconvulsive therapy session get impacted if the body is healing from a cut or a bruise at the same time?

No: Unless the cut or bruise interferes with electrode placement. Otherwise there is no effect. But there are some theories that it may facilitate healing of a cut or bruise -- but I'd be skeptical. ...Read more

I am interested in getting a lower lid blepharoplasty andfat transposition done. What are the costs generally? What is the healing and bruising time?

I am interested in getting a lower lid blepharoplasty andfat transposition done. What are the costs generally? What is the healing and bruising time?

Good operation..: Hard to explain in a short answer but this procedure is used to improve the blending of the lower eyelid/cheek junction and fill the hollow (tear trough) that develops below the eyelids with aging and descent of the cheek soft tissues. Can be thought of as a hybrid between midface lift and bleph alone. Costs vary: about $5, 000 where I am. Healing and bruising time about 10-14 days. ...Read more

Lower lid blepharoplasty and fat transposition only. What are the costs? What is the healing time? Is there any bruising? I am 60 years old and in

It depends.: If you are otherwise in good health and avoid any medications that can thin your blood, and avoid strenuous activity powt-oepratively, most or all bruising should be gone by 10-14 days at the latest. You should feel essentially "healed" within 7 days. Costs will vary according to geography but surgical fees can generally range from $2, 000 and up, plus anesthesia and facility costs. ...Read more

Swollen tender groin lymphnodes and hip pain from time to time with activity. Received ultrasound but dr said its normal. Second opinion? Been months

SIJ?: 20's male with chronic intermittent unilateral "hip pain & groin lymph nodes" with "activity" had "normal" ultrasound. Apparently, doctor didn't find enlarged nodes, which might be patient's self-diagnosis; otherwise further studies would be in order; even biopsy. Assuming "enlarged nodes" are "red-herring", see Osteopath to rule out sacroiliac joint disorder w. groin pain radiation. ...Read more

Buddy strapping: Use a tape to strap your affected finger to the adjacent finger for support.
If you keep experiencing ongoing pain then an X Ray is a wise idea.
Most finger sprains recover within 2-3 weeks provided you keep it well supported and do not hurt it again during sport ...Read more

6mm herniated disc, L4-L5. Lower back pain and now into hip. Is steroid normal initial treatment. What's best, very painful at times.?

6mm herniated disc, L4-L5. Lower back pain and now into hip. Is steroid normal initial treatment. What's best, very painful at times.?

Therapy Usually fist: If the herniation is posterolateral, then epidural or foraminal steroid injection (s) is a possible answer. But your symptoms suggest that the herniation is more central. In case of lateral herniation, the pain would go down to the top of your thigh and your knee (L4 nerve root caught at L4-5). So I think you should try low back strengthening, traction, or a McKenzie certified therapist first! ...Read more

Ur cycle is off because of starting OCPs late - it can take a few months for your body to get use to them and regular cycles to return. If PMS symptoms persist, see ur dr about lowering estrogen dose or having take them continuously. ...Read more
