Vascular Surgery

Broken blood vessels in my wrist

09/29/2008

Question:

I dropped a heavy 28ft fiberglass ladder on my wrist ,I went to Lake after Hour`s a week ago Friday .I still have a bulge on a vein .I did not know if I should see my primary Doctor ar I should be using cold or heat perhaps .

Answer:

Hello. I’m not sure what the Lake after Hour’s is. It sounds like you have a bruise in the area of trauma. This should subside in a 2-3 weeks. If it is still there and bothersome, you could see your primary care physician. Good luck!
