The Knee Bone is Apparently Connected to the Ankle Bone

Had my knee drained as result of my crash a couple of weeks ago. Doctor told me some ice, compression, and Advil should finish the job. But today about 4 hours after I put the compression wrap on my knee, my ankle swelled up like a kielbasa sausage and started turning purple.

Yes, this is a knee injury.

I figure the knee's bursa sack with new drain hole (as of yesterday thanks to drainage procedure) is now draining down the inside of my leg and pooling in my foot. Kind of gross but no pain and kind of an interesting physiological experiment.

Glad to be of service.
