Swollen knee??
« on: January 15, 2004, 04:24:00 PM »
over 2 weeks ago I fell on a hard floor and landed on my left knee.  It was extremely bruised and sore to touch, people thought I could have sprained it.  The swelling and bruising had gone down quite a bit and I carried on exercising without any pain.  Problem is that the swelling had gone down all apart from on the (left leg inside side) on the botton left corner of the patella.  I can touch it, and its really swollen but I dont get any pain when I exercise, only when I touch it.  My main worry is that when I touch it there is a definite ridge and the smaller piece moves separatly from the rest of the patella! What the hell!
Going to the doctor but the appointment is only in a week.  Any ideas what I have done, should I carry on exercising?? :-/

I think it can't hurt to lay off the exercising for the next week, in case you're doing more damage.  Can you do another type of workout - upper body or something?
