Large bruise on knee, numbness, area in in white. What is going on?

I fell heavily on my knee on Monday and have a large bruise around my knee and down my leg. Part of my knee is numb - the feeling you have after the dentist, and it has been that way for 5 days now - is there anything I need to do or will the feeling eventually come back? The area that is numb is also very white yet the area around it is black and blue.

thank you for the query.
The white area on your knee which is numb is due to the decreased blood supply to the are because of the injury may be the vessels under that are damaged there are high chances of ligamentous injury in your case so you need to have an X-Ray and some clinical tests like anterior drawer test will be done by the orthopedician to rule out ligamentous injury.Before it gets worse and troubles you consult your doctor for now just symptomatic treatment is enough until you get diagnosed.Thank you.
