Do you think anything is broken or is it just swollen?

I was running and my leg gave out and fell right onto it. This is after 9 days. I can’t walk fully on it and it has a lot of pain around the bottom and is swollen.

    If it were just swelling, it would have been healed by now! Most swelling last for 3-5 days, the worst is day #2 after an injury, before you notice great improvements on it. 

    The fact this is well over a week now and you still cannot walk on it, leads me to believe its more serious than just swelling! It really could be anything from a sprained knee, to a torn ACL/MCL etc, its really hard to diagnose without medical tools.

    I would strongly recommend you go to the hospital (not your doctor) tommorow and have them do x-rays on your knee where the injury is!

      "This is after 9 days" - they should have been at the doctors before 2
