Hi all. In August I had an arthroscopy on my left knee for general debridement and removal of a large loose body. There was significant post-op bruising that took a long time to disappear.
Every now and then, some of the bruises around the superiomedial porthole (incision point through the tip of my vastus medialis muscle) seem to reappear... not as dark or as vibrant as they were originally, but in the exact same shape. They are faint, but definitely there... sometimes I see them and think they are just shadows, but on closer inspection realize the bruise has returned.
What would cause bruises to seemingly disappear and reappear in this fashion? Has anyone else experienced this?
