Hello Cynthia,

Is there any x-ray image of hematoma or CT scan?

ct scan dr. patell thoracic surgeon says theres nothing we can do it will go away be absorbed by body using ice packs
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Apart from Ice packs, Anti inflammatory analgesic like Motrin may help slightly.

Herbs like curcumin too has a strong anti inflammatory action and is recommended.

Is this helpful to you?

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.
