I was playing a game two weeks ago and landed awkwardly after winning a header, kind of came down with my leg fully extended. I felt a bit of a jerk in it at the time, there was only 10 or so minutes left so I played on although it wasn’t fully right in my movements.
Had a bit of swelling the day after and a slight bit of bruising near it though that could possibly be related to another unconnected knock.
I went for a run there this afternoon and I had a bit of soreness on the outside of my knee, running from where it connects with the calf up the outside of the knee joint. Nothing overly painful but just a bit sore and I don’t think the knee would be up to rigorous twisting and turning at the minute.
I’ve had bother with both knees before, I did my ACL on this particular knee and have suffered patellar dislocations on my opposite knee.
Is this likely to be cartilage or meniscus damage? I know you’re meant to get follow up surgery on the ACL knee to remove cartilage after a certain period of time.
