Fawzia, it sounds like you have an effusion (water on the knee). This might be “water” or blood and if it hasn’t cleared up by the time you receive this reply, the best would be to see your doctor. If it becomes red, warm and tender you should see your doctor a.s.a.p. as it may be very serious. Good luck.
