Here is the initial swelling on the upper outside part of the thigh. Below the scab area the swelling went away. The hematoma is basically from the scab upwards.
Bruising is basically gone now, but since fluid was drawn off it has noticeably filled back up.

I fell recently and my thigh and hip hit the top wooden rail on the cattle run and I ended up flat on the ground.
My leg ended up looking much like that in the picture on the hematoma wikipedia page.
Bruised from the top of the leg to behind the knee.
Although the picture shows what the bruising looked like it doesn't do a very good job of depicting what the actual hematoma looked like that I had.
It was a big bump and only got bigger. It looked about like a third butt cheek on the side of my leg.
Upon my first visit to the doctor he said he could likely not draw much fluid off with a needle as it was a jelly like consistency and it would breakdown over time to liquid that could be drawn off with a needle.
Yesterday the doctor took about 5 oz. of fluid off of it (think about the amount of a half can of a soda). That made a definite difference in size, but there was still a small more solid bump left. Since yesterday the bump does look to have grown a bit, which he said it may. We'll see how things look at my appointment next week.
I also added Google Translate to the full site (dropdown in the upper right), so it can be enjoyed internationally. Ha. As it is translating text, hopefully it's much better than Google Voice's translation. I like Google Voice but the translation can make for some good humor.
So it has been some time since I posted anything here. Like many I frequented microblogging more and left this one simply out there like so much other randomness. Now my microblogging has fallen off, my football Facebook fan page has not seen me for a while and not contributing much on Google +, so who knows what's next. I could always hook my blog up to share on Google+.

I have successfully done this from the browser on a BlackBerry 8530 and on an Android 1.6 based tablet.
Curious to know if others have the same results and from what device.
