Leg Injury Leads to Knee Problems


Q: I fell on my leg three different times. The first time, my calf just swelled a bit. The next time, it was a bit bruised. But the third time, it swelled immensely and looked like I had a softball in my calf. It also bruised a bunch. My mom had me ice it, and that has taken down some of the swelling, but it has almost been a month and it still feels like it is full of fluid and is very bruised, and now I am having troubles with my workouts because I cannot jump on my right leg because my knee with get sharp pains and give way. What is going on???
