Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Can I please ask your age and how your shoulder was fixed?
Did you have any surgery?
It can be quite normal to have a bruise but the swelling is not so normal. Were you advised to elevate your arm to reduce the swelling?
The bruise will definitely go down so I am not too worried about this.
The swelling will also go down over time and you need to keep your arm elevated as much as possible and tolerated. However, if the swelling gets worse, you should contact your GP or facture clinic for a review.
