Thank you for this question. In general, if you have concerns about needing to speak with your doctor
, it is best to either see your doctor or speak with him or her about your concerns. In your case, as some time has passed, some of the risks of head trauma would have shifted. In the immediate period after a trauma, bleeding
concerns into the closed cavity of the skull can be life threatening. Some signs of this include changes in mentation, vision changes, or other changes in the ability of your face or body to function right. Other short term risks include concussions and other injuries to the brain itself. Fortunately, there are some good guidelines for doctors
that help them to know whether or not some sort of imaging is needed. For example, if you have a change in your mental status, loss of consciousness, or a wound in the head, we know that we need to get some sort of picture of the inside of your head. It is not clear if you have any of these, but you should discuss them with your doctor. There are other injuries, such as neck injuries, that should also be discussed. Please speak with your doctor.
