If one wasn't bad enough....
« on: October 27, 2005, 02:17:47 PM »
I now have 2 bad knees!

First one is the big mystery since as most know I don't know what happenned prior to the pain starting.

The second though I did last friday, thought I would leave it a few days iced up to see if it was just a knock. Well still hurting now!

What happenned was, I was out, ended up in a mosh pit and a group of us slipped because of some ****** throwing water on the floor. I flew a couple of feet up in the air  landed on my left elbow, left knee and my ribs on to a mixture of concrete and steel. I landed square on my knee cap first. Suffice to say I was limping home that night.

I get an occasional pain right over my kneecap pretty much bang centre where I landed. Running my fingers with slight pressure around the edge of my knee cap isn't painful but as soon as I touch around the middle, depending on how much pressure at least some noise will come out from the pain.

So any ideas of
1) What I should do. I already have appointments with physio and an open appointment with orthopaedics. Should I just wait until I see the physio or have my GP/minor injuries check it out?
2) What might I have actually done to it!

Do the usual, rest, ice and elevate. Are you able walk on it ?
I think you bruised it pretty much.
Ask your phys next time, if phys is very soon or call your GP.
Sorry you ended up hurting the good knee.
Hope it's nothing serious.

Physio is next wednesday.

And I can walk it's just I don't know which leg to favour now! One I fell on gives like a pin prick sort of pain when ever I step and an annoying ache.

I hope you weren't moshing to Bon Jovi.á That doesn't seem like it would have been worth your trouble.

Prof,

I agree wit Nettan, call your GP.  If you will be seeing your PT in the next day or 2 you might be able to wait till then, but you don't want to dammage the knee by not checking it out.

Good Luck and let us know how it goes.

Sounds like Moshing is rough on everyone.

ah i think im just going to leave it until i see the PT. In the UK its different we have to go see the GP and im not waiting at the GP on friday i would be there for hours and i know on friday they only have the GPs in I don't like lol

My knee actually has a bruise on it! And that must sound weird me saying that lol but I NEVER bruise. When I broke my arm I had no bruises and when I was mugged and had teeeth knocked out split lip etc I had no bruises so it is really rare for me to see a bruise on myself lol

Edit: Just remembered I have the digi cam now so here is a pic of the knee I banged lol. Also got pics of the knee for which I joined the site about, should I post them here or elsewhere?.
