My surgical bruises healed quite fast. But I began having severe bruising in my arms, without any major trauma to cause them. I began by supplementing with one vitamin K supplement (besides what was in my multi), and noted some improvement over the next 10 days or so. I bumped it up to two of the small K pilled supplements daily, and now I rarely see any bruising, UNLESS I've had some major trauma (like carrying heavy objects, falling down, running into furniture or walls, etc.). So it appears the vitamin K helps me with this issue. The bruising became very noticeable around 2 1/2 to 3 years, and now at 5 years any buises are small. Prior to using the K supplement, I often had bruises the size of silver dollars on my arms. Bruises today tend to me smaller than a dize, unless I had trauma to my arms. Surgical nurse that works with my surgeon suggested to use it, and it appears to work fine. DAVE
