      So about 17 days ago I dropped a barbell on my lower quad (VMO area) and had some pretty deep gashes. No breaks or tears, just soft tissue wounds.

      At this point I’m getting some pitting edema around the knee area, and I can’t seem to get the fluid to go away no matter what I’ve tried. Any ideas on how to get it to leave for good?

      Have you been in to your doctor since the injury? Pitting edema 17 days after something like that, and with the history of gashes, makes me think you should be cleared of any infection before continuing.
