It would be better to see an Orthopaedic Surgeon. The injury you had may or may not be a ligament injury of the knee. The Orthopaedic Surgeon will examine you and probably order an MRI if he suspects ligamentous injury.

A swollen knee that does not improve in 9 days is almost surely a sign of major damage to the knee. It needs clinical examination, X-rays and maybe even an MRI.
Next Steps
Please visit an Orthopedic surgeon.
