Hematoma on shin - how long to go?

It will teach me to build Ikea wardrobes; large box fell on shin, massive bruise which has gone, but huge lump.

Went to the docs and he said it was a blood clot (not the type that goes to your lungs and kills you) and it will go eventually. He said to try and keep it elevated for 2-3 days with a warm compress; after I fell off my chair laughing, the very thought with kids, work, DH away etc etc.

It's very sore and ugly, anyone had and when did it go?
