Currently nursing a deep purple bruise that goes around my butt, down my leg, encompasses my knee, a bit of the calf, covering the tailbone and sneaking up the spine. Heh. Can't remember the fall that did this to me....all I know is that about 3:30P my hip started to stiffen. By next day it was sore and I didn't think it prudent to ski....bruise didn't show up for almost 5 days (and 48 hours of icing)! Suddenly it was a doozy! Eggplant purple and very sore. I was skiing very aggressively off-piste with an "8" class and do remember one, seemingly easy fall done purposely to avoid a tree about 2P. Not any pain to speak of; got back up and finished the run, going on to several other mogul runs.
don't mess with this...
the reason it has migrated down the leg is cause the blood has 'flowed' that way!
you've prolly damaged a blood vessel large enough to allow blood seepage into the leg.
the blood pools around the lower back when you lay down... hence the blood/bruise around the back.
have it looked at! by a doctor who doesn't poo-poo you off!
if you continue to see 'eggplant', especially up in the hip area where you 'felt' the injury, then that means there's fresh blood intrusion into the tissue!
clotted blood eventually goes to dark then to 'Green', continuing reddish eggplant is a NO NO!
likely this could eventually heal by itself OR it could be serious stuff!
been there... don't mess with this!
