no. The bruise is in the tissues of your thigh and, as such, won't move to other parts of your body like you hear about in people who have large blood clots in their veins.
Clots in the veins and bruises in the "meat" of your thigh are totally different things.
Does this make sense to you?

Hi. Welcome to chat. I was just addressing your question. Is there anything else you would like to ask me?
Is there anything else I can do to reduce the swelling and the pain? Is the ice pack the best treatment?
Since the pain meds are making you dizzy ice packs and tylenol seem like your best bet.
Thank you, ***** ***** worried about blood clots but I understand that this is different than Blood clots in the veins. You have given me piece of mind.
My pleasure. I hope you feel better soon.
