Ha, I got huge bruises from heparin in the hospital as well.
These will clear but it can take a long time, especially depending on your current state of health. Not sure what your issue is, but just for example, it took about
6-8 weeks for my heparin bruises to clear completely while I was having a UC flare (severely anemic, malnourished, etc). Now that I'm "healthy" the new ones I got about
20 days ago are mostly gone.
Hope this helps.
