Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.


You have an undisplaced fracture and partial tears of ligaments that can heal with proper immobilization in a cast for 6 weeks.

I hope this information has been helpful for you.

In June I had a bulge taken off L3 and due to damaged nerve to knee, I had months of physical therapy and have been walking unaided for a couple of months. About 6 days ago I fell on concrete hitting both my knees. X-ray taken of my bad knee showed nothing broken or cracked and said it was badly sprained. Today the knee started hurting more and it now has a large red splotch on top. It feels very hot, but isn t very sore to touch.

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