Dr. Steven Shannon
Orthopedic Surgery

In brief: Knee injury

Question is-can you walk? If you can't bear any weight on the knee without severe pain you may have a fracture.
If this is the case you should see your local doc or orthopedic surgeon for further evaluation with an exam and xrays.

If you can stand on it or doesn't hurt too much wait three days before seeing someone. It should get better
