HI. My husband is in an assisted living facility. He fell yesterday and hit his knee and today the knee and calf of his leg are both swollen and red and warm to the touch. His calf and knee are approximately 1 1/4 inches bigger in diameter than his other leg. He had a knee replacement on the inured knee approximately 4 years ago. Thank you, Jan

yesterday noticed a little swelling below my brother in laws knee cap, today his whole knee & calf is swollen and very bruised. I asked him if he twisted it, but he s not sure what had happened. He s on the way to the doctor soon, but I was just wondering for working purposes what s going on. I help him and my husband in their family farm. I hope it s nothing serious.

After a fall from a bike I badly deflected my right leg. It is very swollen but 3 days later I have numbness to the knee to the right and below the knee which also occassionally gives a burning/stabbing sensation. X-rays at hospital were not thought to have shown any fractures. Can you advise please

Hi, I rolled my right ankle about 4 weeks ago. After about 2-3 weeks of rest and icing my right ankle, it felt pretty good. Good enough to start jogging again. I could walk and jog with no pain. On the forth week I tried to get back into soccer. Before the game I laced up my shoes and ankle brace then stood straight up to go for a jog. Immediately when I stood up I noticed a sharp ripping pain, across the bottom of my shin maybe near the top of the extensor tendons (if that s the right name for it, the tendon attached to the tibia), moving from the outside to the inside of my foot. I tried loosening the ankle brace but still the ripping pain continued when I stood up. I completely loosened the ankle brace and the ripping pain left and I could jog again. I decided not to play and started to examine the pain. The ripping pain only occurs when I over-extend my right leg or when I am standing/extending my leg and touch/grab my lower shin/upper ankle area. I had an X-Ray done on my lower leg/ankle but I haven t heard back from the doctor so I figured there wasn t any issues with my bones or ligaments. That leads me to believe it is a partial tear(s) in the muscle or tendon. Could you please give me a general idea if I need to have it surgically repaired or will I be able to continue resting and wait it out and eventually it will heal properly all on its own? Thanks Adam Cyr

I just had hip surgery and my physical therapist said that when they got in the joint they saw bone discoloration. She wasn t able to explain much past that. Do you have any ideas about what it might mean? The surgery involved fixing a labral tear and sanding some bone down as well.
