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.

Get a MRI. It's impossible to diagnose whether or not you've torn a ligament with x rays or manipulation alone. Hope it's just sprained tho

Well, it could be the end if you dont fix what's wrong. If you fix it, even an ACL tear or any other tear, your career won't be over. Just delayed. From what I Hear, and will find out in time, is that once you fix the knee, it's stronger and better than ever.

I hurt my knee in a similar fashion playing flag football in September 2010. My swelling wasn't quite as bad as yours, though. I didn't see anyone about it and just let it heal. It took well over a month for my limp to go away.

I mean...I was doing post routes and out routes at 70% or so...if I had an ACL I don't think I could do that.
My daughter tore her ACL and PCL near the end of basketball season her junior year and played the last four games with a brace. She said it hurt like hell, but she was told by the MD, "It isn't like you're going to do much more damage, we're gonna have to cut it anyway". A 2nd MD said essentially the same thing so I let her play. She was probably only 70-75%, but still much more effective than the replacement would have been.
A week after the State tournament, she had surgery.

Moral of the story: Get the damn thing checked, you don't know what could be up.....but you ain't gonna die. Play until you see a doc if you feel up to it.

As an aside, ligament tears don't have an abnormally large amount of swelling.

does it hurt if you tap or bump it with an object or against like a solid wall?

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.
Good pills?

Breaking up a poorly thrown pass. What was Cassel doing in your flag football league?

No Baby, that's just how I talk. Besides, I have been managing knee surgery recovery on Advil and Tylenol alone. Which makes me happy. I did get the nerve block tho and that numbed my leg for over 30 hours. I have the good pills and the good "shit" ( you know Mary Jane), but sor far, haven't had to use it

Doesn't sound good. Get that MRI.

Though some African tribes say that urinating on the injured limb has a great effect on recovery

Seriously, get the MRI.

I tore up my knee playing golf at the Lake of the Ozarks a few years back, and was able to finish the round, and play another. So don't go by your ability to get around. Get it thoroughly checked out.

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.
