almost 3 years ago i broke my knee badly. the doctor said it was one of the worst breaks he'd ever seen in a knee, and he said nothing about pain coming back. well yesterday i went with a bunch of friends to this fair thing, and while walking around my knee started cracking painfully. now when i woke up a few minutes ago and its all swollen and feels like somethings a little off center, like my kneecap. i really don't want to have to go through another ordeal like before. anybody know exercises or better yet what the problem is?

EDIT:now if i listen closely when i straiten it i hear what sounds like a subtle bubble wrap noise, like a bunch of little pops and cracks. i am freaking out a little.

Listen to this guy. He knows his ****.

In all seriousness, see a doctor. You really don't want to risk doing some bad **** to your knee. It may be an ordeal, but think of the worst case scenario if you don't do it.

Alternatively, you could cut the OTHER knee open, have a look around, then cut open your sore knee and see what the differences are.

You dislocated your patella (kneecap). I've had this happen five times and it SUCKS! Last summer my doctor put me in a full leg cast. You're going to have to go to the hospital. ASAP.

Hello, welcome to the UG doctor service. Hmm, swollen knee? Let me guess. You have been fapping a bunch, and contracted aids from porn. This has caused all your semen to float to your knee, and make it swell up. You have two options now:

1. Poke it with a pushpin and let the semen drain out
2. Amputation


Seriously, go see a doctor

It may have re fractured due to pressure put on it, or rapid movement. Or the doctors who fixed it didn't do it right.

yes, the best exercise would be a car ride to the doctor.

the problem is your knee had been broken, now you're having complications.
you need a doctor, not the Pit.

Seek medical care if:

* Your knee hurts and doesn't function properly after an injury
* Your knee hurts, even when you're not putting weight on it
* You have knee pain after a popping sound or snapping sensation
* Your knee locks rigidly in one position, or your kneecap is visibly out of place
* Your knee seems unusually loose or unstable when you put weight on it
* Your knee is swollen
* The pain is associated with fever, chills or redness around the joint

-----------

In all seriousness though it sounds like you strained a ligament or something.

This is 'The Pit', I wouldn't be surprised that someone would actually try this.

why is that?

Your knee is hurting, why would you want to strain it more by exercising? Because that's all exercise will do to it.
