Is it possible to have a fracture above the knee because of hitting it and still being able to walk on it because i'm in a lot of pain?
Possible fracture: It's not clear what hit above your knee and how long ago this occurred. If it has been 1-2 weeks since the injury, then it should be evaluated and x-rays done.
