Pain in the knee with swelling, difficulty in walking post a hard fall on the foot. Done cold compress and had kept leg elevated. Chance of major damage?<br>

Yesterday I was painting my living room and lost my balance on the ladder. I fell from 4 feet but landed on my right foot with all of my weight. I immediately had pain in my knee and had swelling within an hour. I kept it elevated all night with ice but more swelling today and hard to walk. Do you think there is major damage?

Please consult a doctor immediately. You need to get an xray and rule out a fracture. Its very important to immobilise your knee at the earliest. Take Care
