Doing a small squat per PT my thigh exploded. This is 18 days post hip replacement. MD did not do an ultrasound until 20 days after incident. Unable to put any weight on leg. X-ray fine. Thigh hematoma is 6.5cm x 5.5cm x 4.5cm. Pain is 24/7.
Second US done 32 days after incident. Off aspirin for 10 days. Hematoma now congealed and creating pressure in groin all of thigh, position dependent. MD says wait until it absorbs itself, could take a month or more. I am so afraid of tissue necrosis and permanent damage. Not given pain medication to relieve enough so I can function. Is this detrimental to a recovery without negative sequele?
