Left knee pain, swollen, hard to bare weight.fell on it approx 10 mo ago. No other injuries since.had arthroscopy on it approx 20 years ago. Heat,ice,pool no hl
Hi Candy, Thanks for ur query. You probably suffered from traumatic osteoarthritis due to fall 10 mo back. You need to undergo an MRI/CT of the knee to see the extent of damage. Take anti-inflammatory drugs (such as Ibuprofen + Paracetamol) for 7-10 days; continue cold compresses; use a knee cap and give your knee some rest. Consult your orthopedic surgeon who knows what's best for u Dr. Karanwal
 
I am having trouble with the tendon below the knee cap i can even jog please give some solutions for the pain and what i can do to stop ot without surgery
