Knee Pain Following Accident 12 Weeks Ago

So my chain snapped around 12 weeks ago which sent me to the floor pretty quick and my knee too most of the grunt:

It resulted in pretty bad pain in my calf but not my actual knee, until I have started riding again. Now I have a nagging pain behind my kneecap spreading up to just below my quad.

Does anyone know any likely problems that arise from this sort of injury or how best to remedy them?

p.s. I now have a chain checker.

p.p.s go check you chain.
Remember Rule #5

    Go to your vet to get it checked out.

    Damage to knees can cause pain for a long time, I was kicked in the knee back in 1958 and sometimes it plays-up.
    Now where's that "Get Out of Crash Free Card"
