Bruise From Nowhere

Bruise From ???

Last Monday I noticed this bruise on the back of my leg.
It hurt pretty good.
See that white spot in the middle?
That's where it hurts to the gentle touch.
I don't know how I got this.

I went to the doctor on Tuesday because I got worried.
I thought it could be a blood clot.
They checked my blood and said eveything looked ok.
She said to watch it and see if it changes and grows.

See the red line around it?
I drew that on Tuesday.
It has grown a little and gotten darker.

Ever since Tuesday I have noticed my right knee hurting.
It has gotten progressively worse.
Today it is a little swollen and crunches when I bend it.
Not good.
And I swear I haven't done anything to hurt my leg or knee!
I wonder if the two things are related.
I think I just might have to go back to the doctor tomorrow.
What do you think?

I don't know if you know or not, but gastric bypass is a major surgery. I had mine about 3 months ago and I'm miserable. Sometimes I wish I would have stayed fat, seriously! I know its better for my health and all, and eventually I will look better.. but still! I've been writing some articles on the subject, you may find it interesting... I am eventually going to start a support group for people like myself. Here it is: Info About Gastric Bypass
