My husband has a bone bruise from having blood taken a few weeks ago, and it won't go away. It doesn't hurt, but it's still there. He's not taking blood thinners, or anything. Is this normal? Should we be concerned? Thanks, Lisa.
How is his bruise doing now? Is he taking aspirin at all? Here is an article I found from The Mayo Clinic about bruising and how this can be common for older adults and also for anyone taking medications including aspirin to thin the blood. You may also try this link on bone bruising.
Please know that I am not a doctor and cannot give you medical advice...but in researching your question...it truly varies how long a bruise can last. If you are still concerned...the best thing to do is to give your husband's doctor a call.
Let us know what the doctor says. Thank you for your question.
