Does fluid on the knee ever go away and not return?

by Shannon
(Washington, DC)

About 8 weeks ago I twisted and sprained my knee getting off a bus in high heels. I had a large bruise on the inside of my left knee and it hurt for many, many weeks. The fluid is still there and gets worse when I walk for a long time or do anytype of weight-bearing exercise. Do you know if this will ever stop? Is fluid a sign that the injury is still trying to heal?

Thank you!
