Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
Get an x ray done.
If it was a fracture there might be bone peices. Fracture is always painful and cause swelling. I dont think he is having fracture.
Consult orthopaedic surgeon because there might be hematoma in knee joint that has to be aspirated. Apply crepbandage and apply ice ove it.
Do not sitvon floor, do not climb stairs nor sit in squatting position.
If does not get relieve.
Get mri done.
Get well soon.
Thank you.
