I still have the bruise!!

I was hit in the mid-shin by a softball while pitching in a game about 12 weeks ago. The immediate result was a grapefruit size swelling and briuse that rose out of my leg. I applied ice immediately. X-rays showed no break. The swelling went down after 5 weeks but the blood and bruise drained all down my leg into my ankle. That went away at about 7 weeks. I still have a visible and sensitive briuse on my leg and the area surrounding it is numb. At the 4th week, a doctor told me not to have any rehab on it and to continue to ice it. What should I be doing now? Should I have it checked again? Will rehab help now? When will the bruise be gone and the feeling return? Thanks for your help! Cheers!
