Today I Said, "Enough!"

A short recap for those that know nothing about what I am talking about: I fell in the shower/tub the first part of October. It was a bad fall. My leg was bruised all over, but didn't appear to be that dark. In the past few weeks I've noticed that a small circle (about the size of a large egg) itches like crazy! It's still discolored. There is a lump under the skin.

I call my main doctor to get an appoint. They wanted me to see a dermatologist. I called the dermatologist and they wanted me to see my main doctor.

My co-worker said, "Just go to UrgentCare." So tonight I did just that. I have what's called a "Hematoma." It's a really BAD bruise. It can be a big deal. My happens to not be. She said if it was in the back of my leg it may be a bigger deal. The fact that the lump is so close to my skin and itches is a good thing. It means it's healing. I'm supposed to keep lotion on it as much as possible. If it starts to get hot, bigger or red than I should go in again.

I'm so glad it's nothing to worry about. Now I can cancel my other unneeded appointment.

Good to know that, even I fell in the tub in May and it still hurts when it's too cold.
