Swelling down Shin
« on: June 08, 2006, 01:51:35 PM »

I had a fall a few weeks ago and am awaiting arthroscopy for suspected meniscal tear (yet another one!! :(), anyway, I had major swelliing of the whole knee for about 2 weeks before it started to subside but I also had swelling down the front of my shin which I've never had before, its still slightly swollen there to, I mentioned it to the OS but he didn't offer any comment on it.  Is it usual to have swelling down your shin after a fall?  I've fallen countless times and had everything from major ligament, tendon and bone problems to minor meniscal problems  ::) but never had swelling here.  Any info would be great.
