Any ideas, knee injury 5 weeks down the line

Posted , 8 users are following.


Just to see if anyone has any thoughts. Playing football 5 weeks ago and with no one near me I went to push away and felt a rip in right knee and excruciating pain. Think I twisted. No broken bones per x ray. Ended up with bad swelling all around knee. Also went yellow and blue from knee all the way down shin. If I could post pictures I would. Eventually after 5 weeks I have much less pain. I can weight bear, but get bad pain when I bend and weight bear. Also a bit of creaking noise. Pain mostly on the inner side of knee. I'm hopeful now it's mending itself but is there the possibility I have been left with an underlying problem that could recur? I have specialist on Wednesday. Cheers, James. PS can post photos here?

    Sounds like you may have torn a ligament.
