Back at the end of January I had a LP. It did not go well as the doc kept hitting the bone. On 4th attempt with a different doc it was sorted. It left me with a nasty painful bruise on my back. The bruise took about 3 weeks to fade to a greyish colour. Now its 3 months later and there is still this greyish patch where the bruise was. It is not painful but I am suprised at this. will it ever return to normal?
I had a LP back in May last year. I have a mark where it was done, not really a bruise, it looks closer to a scar but it's not really a scar either. It actually sort of looks like a birthmark now that I think about it
