10 days ago I fell over and landed heavily on my right knee. I have lots of bruising all down that leg but the pain has improved as long as I don't Kneel, that is still very painful. However last night I noticed that my lower leg and ankle are quite swollen, no further pain but feels tight. 4 cm difference in size from my left calf. I do not think it is a DVT as I have no symptoms other than swelling. Do you think I should get it seen?
Thanks for replying, I do not have any calf tenderness or redness just a generalised swelling of my lower leg. I have hideous large lower legs anyway but there is a distinct difference between the 2. I am a HCP but do not want to be a time waster !
