Indent on glut after a fall

I fell almost a week ago now. I hurt back and rear pelvis bones across lower back and butt. Now I have an thumb print size indent at right rear hip, about what I believe is the top of glut muscle. Any ideas of why? I know it was absolutely never there before. The bruising is yellowing now and I am not in any more pain than should be expected.

Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult o comment specifically on the situation. This could be normal or could represent a soft tissue injury. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
