I fell last week on my knee pretty hard. It was scraped up pretty good, and I had a lot of pain and swelling but I had a previous fall about 5 years ago on ice. So I thought I just aggrivated the old injury. I now have a lot of pain behind and around my knee cap and behind my knee. The pain also is traveling up the inside of my thigh. I did not fall on my knee cap but below it. Any idea on what the possible injury could be would be appreciated. could someone develope a blood clot after a fall like this?
