Thanks for posting your query.

You might develop posttraumatic arthritis of knee.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance to see the arthritic changes and rule out any other bony pathology .

In the interim, take anti-inflammatory drug like mortin to reduce pain and inflammation.
