Red face can't extend my knee

hi, i was in a car accident a couple weeks ago and had to get 22 staples right under the knee cap. the laceration was to the bone. since then, i cannot extend my leg from the knee down no matter how hard i try. i can move my toes and ankle and my hip and thigh. but i try as hard as i can to extend it and nothing happens. what could be wrong?

Re: can't extend my knee

Sounds to me like scar tissue. I would talk to your doctor and set up some Physical therapy.
