Has anyone ever brokena kneecap and not known until it started to be painful? I had a nasty fall

Posted , 2 users are following.

About 4 years ago now, I was out walking my dog at the time, walked over some uneven slabs on the path, and down I went. Took me a while to get up, but up I got, then continued to walk back home. There was no one about at the time. When I got home my knee looked like it had a golf ball under the skin, and boy it hurt like hell. The pain went away and the swelling went after a couple of days rest and hot compresses on it to bring it down. I have psoriatic arthritis, osteopsorisis and osteo arthritis. The last few months it has been clicking every time i bend my knees, just kneeling down on it the last couple of weeks has pushed 2 bits of cartiliage out. It is quite painful now. I saw my RA nurse and she has got me an appointment to have it assessed and a steriod injection will be given. Just wondered if anyone else had been through this or known someone that has and how it got sorted.
