Hi, Thanks for writing into us.

Swelling will not affect the stability of knee joint. Swelling may be there for few days due to contusion. It would take some time to resolve.
CT findings reveals no fracture so that nothing to worry. Take medications as prescribed. Please restrict your joint movements and take rest.

Wish you speedy recovery
