Sorry but: Questions are not connected so do not know what the original question or problem was. It sounds like you need to be sure to elevate your foot as much as possible.

My knee hurts when straighten and when I close it. Would an ACE bandage do any good?

My knee hurts when straighten and when I close it. Would an ACE bandage do any good?

Swelling?: If the knee is swollen, then both the straightening and bending of the knee beyond 30 degrees causes pain that is due to increased pressures in the knee and stretching of the capsule of the joint. If you have had a recent injury that has left your knee swollen and painful as you described it, it may be due to soft tissue injury sustained by your ligaments or menisci. Need to be evaluated! ...Read more

Probably patella?: You probably dislocated or subluxed your patella - not your knee if you have had recurrent epidodes of this you might not need to be seen. But if this is the first episode you should be seen and xrayed you may have a chip fracture or possibly an injury to the capsule, retinaculum, patella tendon or quad muscle from the injury. ...Read more
