I went last night to the ER and found out I cracked my patella and possibly injured my ACL. They wrapped it up and sent me home. Told me to return if it gets hot, more swollen or the pain gets too bad.



I've taken anti-inflammatory meds and pain meds. Today it hurts more, my toes are swollen, I can't move them at all. I'll put a pic of it today, in replies



Update

I broke my.knee. huge break.that naval missed. Hurts so bad

1 mom liked this
no pic but. swelling is normal.
put your leg up above your heart. like lay on the couch and put like two pillows under your knee. it needs elevation and Motrin.
ice for twenty mins
ice off for twenty.

try the elevation and ice for the day before going back . (at least that's what I would do) =)


hope you feel better!!!

It's elevated on four pillows plus in a recliner.

I fell with my knee under me, it snapped.
