3 weeks ago I came off my bike at high speed and smashed into a guardrail. My left thigh took the brunt of the impact, halfway between the knee and thigh. I have substantial swelling. Twice doctors drained a pinkish color liquid ( 240cc and 250 cc ) but finally the social security trauma specialist said this was not neessary, that the body would/should absorb the liquid. I was told to wear a tight compressor bandage which I have done but the swelling is the same. I am waiting for a resonance scan and in the meantime am resting. I have a tearing sensation inside my thigh where I assume I ripped the muscle and I have searing constant pain unless I take a painkiller. By the way, I am 54, my knees are very very degraded with artrosis, both knees meniscus removal from racing injuries as a lad. I am worried because my mobility is seriously affected.
