I am a teenage girl, who is a heavy swimmer. I began having pain in my right knee. It went away but the swelling stayed. They at first told me it was bursitis and said I would need 6 weeks of physical therapy. It wasn't getting better, so I went to another doctor. I had an MRI done, and he said it was a severe bone bruise. He put me on crutches for 6 weeks, and I couldn't swim. I went back and he said 4 more weeks on crutches and I could begin to swim again. My knee is really not better, and has begun to hurt even worse and swell again. Does anybody have any ideas of why this is??
