    Broke left collar bone and my right wrist/hand at end of July. I'm going to the doc this wednesday for checkup and maybe get cast off and sling. THing is I havent seen the doc since I got cast and all that good stuff and my left bicep shoulder area next to my collarbone is STILL bruised. Do any of you have any insight to this. Not that it matters cuz I'm going to be seeing the doctor in a few days but it just kinda scheeves me out cuz I know a bruise = internal bleeding...so ive been bleeding inside for a month???? thats bad, no?

    i think im dying slowly

    I've had a deep bruise in my leg that got darker and darker and darker until it was almost black, but then it went away like a normal bruise. I think it just meens that the tissue was damaged enough to concentrate blood flow more than a normal bruise. If you are peeing blood or seeing jesus though, go to the ER asap...

    sean,

    usually if you have a broken bone near a joint, it bleeds out quite a bit...I was in a mid hip cast from a broken knee and my whole leg was black for a good while. your body will reabsorb the blood without a problem in most cases.

    Feel better my man
