Knee injury: You have sustained a significant injury, if the swelling is persisting for this long and progressing to the lower leg and foot. Can be a meniscal or ligament tear or other significant injury. Please see a doctor to get it evaluated further. Ice, anti-inflammatories and knee brace should help.
