Things went well for the next two weeks and then I started to experience swelling around my knee
. No pain
, only swelling. After the season I took 5 weeks off like my doctor said, no activity whatsoever, only walking. I slowly started to ease my way back into playing, weight lifting to strengthen the muscles and running. The first two weeks were fantastic, no swelling. I took a day off and woke up the next day with swelling, for no reason.
