    Patella Impact Crash

    Went over the bars two Sats ago, bonked head good and cheese grated shoulder. Luckily I was wearing full gear including full face.

    Any way I road twice since then with clip ins. No lateral twisting pain or anterior/posterior pain. Training at gym on stationary bike and treadmill.

    I impacted the top of my patella where the quad comes in...right in the gap through the knee pad. No fracture per the xray. I am walking with slight limp at times and there is swollen/fluid filled golf ball size area and a dent in there.

    Thinking chipped patella or minor meniscus tear, any thoughts? Still swollen after ice and now trying heat.
