My daughter fell off some play equipment and banged her hip. It was a massive bruise and quite swollen but thought it would be ok. The bruising is going down (4 days later) but there's still a big lump there. Doctors is now shut until Monday - what would you do - if anything?

Walk in centre tomorrow morning?

Can she walk and does she have the full range of movement in her hip joint?
If so then I would leave it until next week before deciding anything.

Thanks smile

She's moving about fine - definitely no problems there. Just this awful bump.

I phoned nhs direct in the end and have been advised to take her to the docs Monday. I just needed reassurance that it wasn't likely to be something really bad like a break.
