Patient: Under my knee I have a graze where I scraped my leg off a chain. After 3 weeks it is still swollen and bruising keeps appearing slightly lower down on my leg. The leg was still yellow after 2 weeks. I will send picks of what it looked like once I did it
Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query and a clear picture.This swelling looks like bursitis of the knee joint and looks as it t he trauma was just below the knee cap.I would advise the following:- Consult an Orthopedic Surgeon for clinical evaluation, actual examination and investigations like MRI for getting the proper diagnosis and treatment.I hope this answers your query.
