Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have large scabs from other wounds from the fall. Pain has Demi usher subatantially over the past week. No other symptoms.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Diminished.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Pain has diminished. Gracious.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The hard lumps are likely to be hematoma.
Those are organized collection of blood.
Those would get absorbed gradually.
You can apply warm, moist compress.
If those get bigger or become painful, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.

Doctor can take ultrasound examination to check for clot.
I hope this information will be helpful.

I hit both legs shoulder. Fell down stairs into concrete.

Those are likely tissue injury from falls.

Those would get absorbed gradually.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
