She went for a jog and fell. What happens next even surprised the doctors
Injuries can happen anywhere and at anytime. The important part is where the injury occurs. Head injuries are very dangerous and immediate medical attention should be sought if you have experienced any type of head injury. One of such injuries is hematoma, which is a collection of blood under the skin tissue, which gets formed due to damage done to blood vessels internally. Though the injury looks pretty gross, most of the time it goes away when you apply ice or heat packs on it. But if that doesn’t help, you have to do what this young girl did after she fell while jogging and developed a big goose egg on her forehead.
Watch the video to know how she gets rid of the injury at the hospital.
1 How the injury occurred?
This girl had gone out for a jog like every day she does. In a bid to remain fit, this girl was doing her daily routine of exercises, which also included a jog in the morning and she was well on her way, when she accidentally tripped and fell. In the process, she hit her head pretty hard on the ground. She had also sustained injuries on her forehead and eyes, which gave her a black eye, due to damage of blood vessels around her eyes. She waited at home, trying ice and heat to get rid of the goose egg that had developed on her forehead. But the injury continued to swell and started to become sore. It pained immensely when touched and finally she decided to visit the doctor after it became too painful for her to endure. What the doctors did with her goose egg is on video, which you can see on the next page.
2 The video of the goose egg being drained
Doctors first examined the injury and determined that it was a hematoma, which is caused by internal damage to blood vessels. This happened when she hit her head on the ground when she fell during the jog. Usually, such injuries get cured at home with ice and heat packs, but sometimes, they can become serious enough for a visit to the ER. In this girl’s case, doctors decided to insert a syringe in the injury and drain the blood out. The doctors drained considerable amount of blood using the syringe and then manually pressed the hematoma to extract the last remaining drops of blood and tissue from the hematoma. The injury also had some pus oozing out of the goose egg and doctors cleaned the wound up and you can see the difference in the before and after draining images here.
