Fell ĎHardí on My Right Knee
Fell hard on my right knee approx 5 weeks ago. Of course it hurt, but the pain is limited to any kind of pressure, like bumping the knee. No pain at all with walking / bending the knee. Had not knelt on the knee for at least four weeks, then last weekend I did some gardening and used knee pads, the knee didnít seem to be too painful. The knee is still swollen and disfigured. A couple days later I knelt down to clean out the leaf trap on my pool, I felt (and heard) my knee pop. The knee moved at least a half inch and I immediately felt excruciating pain. I had bumped the knee once right after the fall, and the pain was the same.
Anyway, now Iím convinced that I need to see my doctor. Problem is that I canít afford to be off my feet for any length of time. Since I can walk without any pain, Iím tempted to ignore the problem and hope that it doesnít become worse in time, or at a later age.
