I fell on rocks a week ago. Several hours later I had a baseball size swelling on my leg. This has happened before so I knew that it meant I was bleeding deep in the leg. I was out of town - called a local doctor - she said to put moist heat on it. I proceeded to do so, but managed to burn my leg. Thereafter I sought medical advice upon returning home, finally seeing my cardiologist yesterday. He sent me to physical therapy for the burn (It's quite painful) and told me to keep the leg up as much as possible. Needless to say, my lower leg and foot are a deep purple. My concern is how badly my leg swells each day. Can anyone give me a heads up on when the swelling will go down for good? (T he cardiologist did a Doppler to make sure I had no blod clot in the leg).
