Knee pain and swelling 2 weeks after falling
Two weeks ago, I fell on concrete skinning and bruising my right knee. It hurt superficially initally and I felt overall muscle stiffness. After a couple days, it ceased hurting all together until two days ago. Now, I feel a fullness in my knee and it is uncomfortable to bend it. I also have a palpable pocket of fluid lateral to my patella. Discomfort is felt just above and below the patella with movement. No pain when at rest. Most pain is felt when going from sitting to standing position. I hear grinding and crunching noises with movement. The scab is gone and there is no warmth or open areas on my knee. I have a history of DVTs and PEs, so initially, the swelling concerned me, but I have no calf pain, negative Homans sign and no dyspnea. The pain is on the anterior surface of my knee.
