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.

Why do you always have to insult people?

Christ. I never get injured. This is a new thing to me. My work can't afford me missing time...I felt AWFUL I had to call in Tuesday and tell them I couldn't walk. I have to be on my knee. It is what it is. I'm not going to stay out of work because "I can" and I have a doctor's note. I like to be accountable.

I'm pretty tough when push comes to shove...they kept trying to get me a wheelchair and I refused it. Is this something I should worry about. I have been the least injury prone person ever in terms of my sporting career. Fractured my foot once in football as a freshmen, and my elbow twice in basketball when I was 11 and 14.

other than that, I just rarely ever get anything worse than a turned ankle.

This is literally the worst injury I've ever had...I'm going to sports medicine on Monday so they will probably do further tests.

Carlota...I can bend my knee and cut right now...I just can't really straighten it the whole way...it was a legit hyperextension...the only place that really hurts is the back side of my knee...

what was your experience/what was hurt/what happened?
Baby, I'm telling you get an MRI. I could bend as well, but couldn't straighten it. I still can't, but we are working on that now. I was shocked to find out that I tore ligaments. Blown away actually. But it was true. Don't do yourself an Injustice and not get the full details.MRI. It doesn't hurt to get one, and it will tell you everything you be to know. Also, if you have torn anything, make sure you get the orthopedic working on your local pro teams. A surgeon who works with athletes. Very important.

well

I have an appointment with sports medicine on Monday so I guess I won't blow that off...

I just did like 4 cuts...I just don't see how this would be an ACL injury...isn't the whole idea behind that ligament 'cutting'?

if they tell me to get an MRI Monday I'll get an MRI but I honestly don't think I could play 20 minutes of flag football where I was running (70% at best) stop routes, out routes and post routes as well as playing defense (at about 70%).

Agree, get to the doc when you can.. If you felt or heard a pop, you more that likely have more damage.

ice, crutches, ibuprofen, rest.

and as a guy who plays constant pickup basketball, softball, and football and bowls every Wednesday I'm just not injury prone...

so I am a n00b at this stuff...I've turned an ankle and that's pretty much how this feels. It's just really swollen...but it has felt better every day. I just don't see how it could be an ACL if I'm cutting.

they gave me crutches but it's icy so using them is pretty ****ing pointless

You might be able to. You'd be surprised. Definitely don't blow the appt off and I guarantee you they are going to want an MRI. Think about what RG3 was able to do before he went all the way down.
My surgeon told me about one of his swim team clients (he is the official doc for the USA swim team) winning swim meets the day after he tore his ACL.
John Elway played football without his ACL and I believe Hines Ward did as well.
You'd be surprised. Get it checked.
