I was hit from the side; skier took off. I'd had previous ACL/meniscus surgeries so was totally freaked out. He hit me right where the incisions were located; slightly above the knee and over the LCL.
Anyway, it got worse over the next several days and I had an orthopaedic PA look at it. No MRI, but diagnosis was bone contusion; slight sprain to the CL's. This was about 10 days ago.
I tried to ski and was OK parallel but in agony when I went into a wedge (I teach). I've been icing and bracing and taking NSAIDs. The pain seems to be more generalized now; at first it was on the lateral side of the knee joint and it's since spread; sometimes to the back of the knee. Very sudden pain and very intense at times.
I'm supposed to work tomorrow and obviously I"ll find out if I even can.
Anyone had experience with bone bruise treatment/healing time?
