One year ago my left calf was crushed between two vehicles for 15 mins. Now I have a 11cm x .9cm hematoma. What should I do?

At the time of the injury the Hospital said that it was just bruised and released him. Now a year later he has a lot of swelling, shooting pain, numbness, and extreme pain to the touch. He had an MRI and an Ultra Sound now a year later and they found the hematoma. What should we do?

I recommend you see a doctor (maybe general surgeon, maybe orthopedic). If the hematoma is causing that many issues, you should probably have it removed (evacuated).
