In brief: Injection site?

Was a catheter inserted into your artery? Is the hematoma from leakage at the site of injection? Then you must be careful that the injection site has healed properly.
Do not do excessive stretching until you know for sure. Initial ice then subsequent warm soaks usually helps the usual hematoma. Have your doctor check out the site carefully.

In brief: Aspiration

A carefully performed hematoma aspiration (drainage) under ultrasound guidance can be very successful if the blood has not significantly clotted.
