cork ass?

I didn't skate at today's practice. I can skate, but the idea of falling on my right butt cheek makes my spine feel weak and shivery. A nurse on our team said it's probably a hematoma. A bruise. There is no external signs but I know you want to feel my ass. That is the only way anyone would know, or by my face as I cringe when I have to slowly lower myself on the toilet... Anything hard.

Contact sports injury "Cork"; when a direct blow compresses and ruptures the muscle against the bone.

Feel it!

I'm skating tomorrow but in a less "contact-sports" kind of way...

  1. Yep, that's what I have too. I actually read that you're not supposed to massage the lumpy part out - that it might make it worse, so I was wrong on that count. I did find that Icy Hot helped quite a bit. Good luck!
