Hi,
There are various types of knee fractures. If it involves the hinge joint of your knee, recovery to full normal movements is less likely. However, if otherwise chances of near normal recovery would be high if you had performed exercises earlier after your treatment.
Now the question is what is preventing further movements of your knee. It could be a shortening/tightness of your muscles and/or ligaments or an irregularity of bone within the joint.
You need to visit your Orthopaedician and get an Xray done. The need for surgery and type of surgery would be decided after that.

Today is the 4th day, still there is very mild swelling and I can t fold my knee completely. Should I be worried

Hi, I am a 23 year old female and an ex gymnast, and now do trampolining a few times a week. 4 months ago I was diagnosed with a stress fracture to my spine (L5) and so am just rehabbing and getting back to sport. I also enjoy running and going to the gym. I recently noticed a protruding lump on my right knee, especially when I bend the knee. The lump appears on the lateral part if the knee along the joint line (according to my physio). It is quite a large lump and quite squishy to touch. The knee does not appear hot to touch or red. It has started to hurt in this area when running and jumping, quite a sharp pain, and aches after activity. I would like some advice as to what it could be and whether I could do any damage by carrying on with sport. I am a very active person and as I have been out for a long time with a back injury I don t want this to prevent me from getting back. Thank you, Amy

I twisted my right foot 3 1/2 months ago and fell forward suddenly on my left knee. I limped around for 3 weeks before going to doctor. xRay and MRI shows bad bone bruise on outside of knee area. A week after seeing the doctor about my knee, my right foot that I twisted during the fall began hurting when walking or putting pressure on it. Started about 5X a day to 20X a day. Went back to doctor, took xrays and was told I have a stress fracture in 2nd matarsal so I wore a hard bottom show for 5 weeks. A week after I learned a had a stress fracture on my right foot, my left foot and ankle swelled up really bad. Went back to doctor, took x-rays and was told possible tendonitis and was put in a knee boot for 3 weeks and out on disability leave from my work for 3 weeks to stay off feet (RICE). The swelling subsided while completely off my feet so I am back at work and have been doing physical therapy for 5 weeks now and my feet are still hurting and left foot is still swelling when I am at work (desk job 85% of the time). Between the knee and both feet, I have been limping around severly and can hardly walk. I go back to doctor in 2 days for a follow-up after physical therapy, should I request an MRI on both feet since we have not done that yet. I am concerned a have a tear or ruptured tendon in one or both feet.

I have a problem that is not resolving. I have right eye ptososis, strabismus, the eye no longer moves to the left and lately constant weeping/tearing from the eye. In the cavernous sinus, I have greater ectasia on the right vs left carotid on MRI and a vascular blush on a cerebral angiogram, suggestive of inflammation, tumor or fistula. Currently, there is no identified aneurysm, no inflammation or infection in CSF or blood, no identified fistula, and no tumor on MRI. High dose steroids are not resolving the problem. What other things could be assessed/examined?
