About a week ago I fell off my motorcycle going about 30-40 mph around a bend, luckily i fell into grass and was not seriously injured but i've noticed that there is brusing down the top of my right thy and lower waist, there's even a dark mark in my appendix scare on my stomache which is usually white. I feel fine just a little sore in the hip but i'm not sure why the brusing won't go away. Thanks to anyone who can help.

  • Deep bruising can take weeks to go away. Ive had bad bruising & it took 4wks or more to clear. After the accident did u go to ER ? where u examined to rule out any internal injuries ? Its important that u did as many have thought theyre ok only to become seriously ill or worse, with internal injurys, u can have slow bleeding from ur spleen, damage to ur kidneys and liver. even a clot forming & breaking off moving to ur heart or brain can be serious/life threating Get examined if u havent already or go back if u feel unwell ! Best wishes :)
