Patient : IM 28 I INJURED MY KNEE IN OCT.2010. FRACTURED THE LEFT TIBIA, AND THEN AGAIN AT THE END OF JUNE 2011 ALONG WITH 3 OF MY TOES AND THE 5TH MEDATRASEL. I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH EXTENSIVE THERAPY SINCE THE 1ST INJURY. WHAT I WOULD IS WHY WOULD MY KNEE SWELL UP TO THE SIZE OF A CANTOLOPE WHEN IT IS ELEVATED AND NOT WHEN I WALK ON IT. AND THE BONES IN MY FOOT STILL SHIFT IS THAT ANYTHING I SHOULD REALLY BE CONCERENED ABOUT.
