Probably normal: Tissue trauma from surgery initiates the body's natural healing mechanisms including the development of platelet rich plasma (PRP). The gel matrix that forms looks like swollen tissue. If you have ever had a scab that you looked under, the yellow "goo" in a wound is platelet rich plasma which is healing the trauma of a tissue wound. A discharge that looks like pus would be abnormal. ...Read more

I had a bruise with a knot on my leg , the bruise is gone after 2 weeks , but the knot is still there , about how long does it take for the knot leave?
Post Bruise Knot: Bruises are actually blood clots. As the bruise heals the old blood calcifies and often can be felt for some time. I have seen these take up to six months to fully resolve. The calcified clot is resorbed usually from the inside out so the 'knot' can be felt for some time post injury. ...Read more

I hit my toe on sofa ~10 weeks ago & it's still a bit swollen, bruised color & painful to touch. X-ray showed no break. Doc said hametoma. Just leave?
Treat swelling: With ice and antiinflammatory. If the toe is swollen and painful, likely a surgical shoe wold be helpful as when there is pressure on the toe when a person propulses to walk this will hurt. X-rays may not always show a fracture the first time. I.E stress fractures show up sometime later. But, even if you did not fracture it a contusion at times can hurt just as bad. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
