So I hyperextended/sprained my knee last Monday...

I was playing flag football and went to break up a poorly thrown ball in my direction and as I came down my knee hyperextended pretty horribly and I was in instant pain thinking I tore a ligament or three. I hobbled back in obvious pain to the LOS and walked it off a bit...it hurt but I could also feel the pain subsidizing so I thought I got lucky...

at halftime (about 3 minutes after) I tested my knee out on the field and could run straight line about 60% and I could make cuts (not aggressive cuts, but cuts at like 60%) so I played the 2nd half (we had no subs) and gutted it out.

After the game I was walking with a limp but it wasn't terrible. As soon as I sat down for a bit it started to tighten and at 5 AM I couldn't move it really...I couldn't get out of bed, I couldn't put on a sock, it was terrible. Horrible, horrible pain.

I went to convenient care at 8 AM and told the doctor everything that happened, and he did some tests and didn't think I'd be able to play on my knee the way I did if anything was torn and my XRays were negative.

Tuesday and Wednesday I could hardly walk...it was bad...horrible limp, terrible pain. Thursday I started feeling better and could walk with a limp pretty well. Same with Friday. Same with today (getting better every day).

My knee is incredibly swollen. I just looked down...is it normal for your whole leg to swell in this situation. I have absolutely no pain in my ankle but my ankle is about 3 times the size of my other ankle (just noticed that).

Is that odd? Normal? I know nothing about this kind of stuff.

Also, I fully plan on returning to flag football in two Monday's...is a sprained knee like a sprained ankle? Am I risking reinjuring it every time I play like an ankle?

Any advice/tips/info would be appreciated.

Hell, I had one of the best orthos in the nation as my doc, (surgeon for Olympians and Pro athletes) and even he didn't see all of the damage until he went in for surgery. Even a MRI doesn't necessarily show everything.
Bingo!!!! Same here. The MRI showed partially torn, and in some pics showed fully torn. I was also very strong and able to do things that led everyone to believe that it was partial, til they went in. It was gone and lodged in my knee cap. having said that, MRI is the only way to understand the extent of the injury.

I dislocated my knee cap last week. Seemed about 75 percent, kept on doing what I was doing. The next morning it was a watermelon. Had to have it drained and MRI tomorrow. Sucks.

That's cool. I love that kinda talk!

It's just gravity. I had a small, fatty tumor cut out of my tricep a few years ago, but the hack surgeon who did it didn't properly cauterize the wound.

I woke up two days later with my entire arm yellow, green, and black. The blood eventually drained down into my elbow and it hurt like a bitch, even though it wasn't the site of the primary injury.

I'd talk to someone in sports medicine at the very least.
