How long does it take for a moderately lg pelvic hematoma to go away by itself. Result of pelvic fractures.

Weeks

Pelvis
Hematomas can take weeks and even months to completely resolve, especially if they are sizable. I suspect the pain that you have (from the fractures and the hematoma) will likely resolve within about 6 - 8 weeks, probably long before the hematoma actually resolves.

How long does it take for a hematoma to heal?

Depends

Bruise
Depends on how large and the location and amount of trauma associated with the hematoma. Also draining the hematoma helps it heal faster. A small hematoma occurring from venipuncture (blood draw) on the arm heals faster than a large hematoma on the lower extremity (slower healing location) caused by severe trauma (ie: car accident).

It will go away in time. Hematomas are collection of blood in soft tissue due to injury, or result of invasive procedures most of the time they will resolve on their own , not the blood clots that cause embolism, need to drain & evacuate if they are pressing on a vital structures, or huge , Drainage or even aspirations , has potential danger of getting infection.

This depends on the complexity and other injuries. In a isolated epidural hematoma that is evacuated rapidly, patients may go home the next day. A lot depends on the size, time after injury, neurological status after the surgery. In general, most require a few days to recover before going home.

Son has scalp hematoma said dr today. What do I do if it doesn't go away in a couple of weeks?

You wait longer

Bruise
If a kid develops a scalp hematoma it represents a pocket of blood in between the skull and deep skin layers that have no blood supply.Blood will eventually break down to its basic chemical fluid and protein makeup and be passively absorbed gradually through the deep skin layers.Transient calcium deposits can form at the site but eventually resolve.
