In brief: Hematoma

Consider ice, rest, limit knee flexion, mild compression with wrap.
If not improved, sometimes evacuation of hematoma is considered.

Agree with Dr Michalski. Check with your PCP as your INR ratio may be high and you may need to go on a lower dose of Warfarin.

In brief: Check INR

Need to see your physician to determine if your clotting studies are within the theraputic levels, and to also check the hematoma.
