Need to be examined: When you have swelling and trouble bending it, you may have injured an internal structure in the knee. The inability to straighten it could be damage to your knee cartilage (meniscus) as well as your inability to put weight on it. You will need an exam to evaluate your ligaments (ACL, MCL, LCL) and to see if the swelling is from the joint. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had knee surgery about a year ago and since then I have had to wear a knee brace every day my knee hurts all the time and my calf stays swollen up?
See details.: This is obviously not a normal result from what i assume to be arthroscopic surgery. You should not still need a brace and should not be in pain. Calf swelling can be secondary to phlebitis or the rupture of a popliteal cyst among other causes. Get a 2nd opinion. I would strongly recommend a new MRI if you have not recently had one done. ...Read more

Recommend Eval: With knee pain lasting a month, swelling and stiffness I would recommend you have the knee looked at. There are several possible causes to your symptoms; some that may be more concerning then others. Your knee may need to be drained (fluid removed). A more thorough history and exam of your knee seems necessary at this point. Consider a virtual consult as a starting point. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
