Knee pain

Patient

Q: Hi.

I just booked an appointment for tomorrow morning with an orthopedic doctor. I've been having pain in my right knee (had ACL reconstruction on my let ACL in 2006). Last week I went to stretch at work and think I may have overextended my knee because my kneecap felt like it was going to pop. Yesterday I started having bad pain in my calf as well as my knee and the calf pain has gotten worse today. Now I'm worried about DVT or a blood clot. Or can there be significant calf pain when you injure your knee?

Thanks!

Symptoms:  pain all around knee, in shin bone, in calf and occasionally in ankle, discomfort
