Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
you have got healed outer knee injury only .IDK also known as internal derangement of knee is causing you pain .in knee internal ligament like cruciate ligament & meniscus also get injured.So get either arthroscopic examination or MRI of knee to find the exact cause & get it treated.
Wish you good health

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.

2years after tkr, have burning, stiffness after standing in one place for a few minutes, pressure behind knee, actually pressure discomfort in back of leg from thigh to calf. The stiffness after standing for just a short time is what really bothers me. Went through usual therapy and achieved excellent flexibility. Sorry, don t know exact number. Still ride my recumbent bike, walk every day. Within 10 minutes of walking, knee starts to burn. Also am not really steady on my feet anymore because of the difference of leg length. I have neuropathy, but not severe, and wonder if that might cause some of the burning.
