Fell and hit knee swelled up big. Xray ok. Dr ssaid hemtoma. Now back and hip sore day later. Why?
Ice first: Generally the first few days we encourage icing to minimize the inflammation. After a few days you can start adding heat to encourage circulation and the healing process.

Hello. : Hello. I canâ€™t diagnose your knee condition. However often times this type of fluid can be due to bursitis. This is swelling of a fat pad. It can become warm, tender and red. If there is also a fever, that can suggest an infected bursa which should be evaluated asap. Cysts can also develop on the knee. This does sound a lot like bursitis. It can be managed by icing and elevating your knee, use of nonsterodial anti-inflammatory medication like motrin, and avoiding activities that increase the pain. If it is not worsening, i would see if your doctor can see you next week. Take care. ...Read more

I have chondromalacia and fell and hit the outside of my knee on Christmas it still hurts all over the front of my knee .what should I do?
Chondral injury: Falling on your knee can produce a tear of the cartilage or a bruise of the knee cap (patella). If you have chondromalacia, it is even easier to do this. A plain x-ray is not likely to demonstrate very much about the cartilage surface. An MRI can show the cartilage surface with high-resolution. Discuss this with your doctor to determine if imaging is necessary at this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
About a week ago i fell off a dirt bike hard and directly hit my knee. It is still swollen and i can't bend it back all the way. Is this normal?
Could have an injury: Hopefully, your injury is a simple strain and bruise but more serious injuries need be excluded. You should see a physician for an exam and probably an x-ray to check for a fracture of your knee cap. You may need an MRI to look for torn ligaments or cartilage.
