You should consult your doctor for an examination and x-rays as soon as possilbe, to determine why there is so much inflammation in your knee joint. It is more likely that there was bleeding into the joint, due to trauma of the cartlidge surfaces. Brittle bone can also result in small fractures, which can also be the cause of the excessive swelling and painful knee. Rest your knee as much as possible and consult your doctor for further testing.
