Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
Hi thanks for the question.
From the problems you had described I think you had pretty bad injuries to both knee. I advice you first to consult local orthopaedic surgeon to rule out any major injuries to ligaments around the knee. Regarding the swelling it must be collection of blood inside your joint, if it is a large collection it should be aspirated, which your doctor might advice you.
