Dobee didn't say what kind of wound it is. If it was a cut it could have become infected causing a lot of pain, or Dobee could have frigged up a tendon or the kneecap or who knows what else.

PS Trep: My knees are fine, thank you! But I do have a two and a half year old bruise on my shin from an accident on a bus.

And how do you think people tear their meniscus, or their anterior cruciate or medial collateral ligaments? When you say a "fall like that" were you there to see how he/she fell or landed? You've watched enough sports to know that knee injuries are fairly common, even among trained athletes. All it takes is a twist and a hard landing. And even if the damage is not warranting surgery, it may leave this person with an unstable knee, making it prone to further injury.

SNM, you can't, from what's been said here, make any assessment of actual damage. Not even an Orthopedic doc would do that.

Thanks, Lynsie. As someone working in the medical field, you can enlighten us more about this of course.

How can a bruise last for two and a half years?

Well it looks just like a bruise. What else could it be?

trep, do I write like stoofa, or are our names "visually/vocally" alike, or do you miss stoofa more than me ?

well, i admit it is now really not a big deal but since a clinic is nearby and my company covers the medical charge, plus i guess the drug store hadn't opened yet (from where I can buy some bandages for my bleeding knee) , i decided to see a doc right after, why not, for comfort and safety?

luckily the cut/wound isn't hurting that bad today...just troublesome not to get it wet when I take a shower and it sucks to see the pus everytime i change my bandage!!!!
