Go see doctor, he's going to make sure you have a tendonitis, sometimes it's a small peice of bone that got tic out when falling.

Best for you is to stop puting tension on your tendon untill you THINK you are ok, after that you can progress from easy,short rides to hard climbing.

Your knee must rest, if you try to do like rambo your cycling life will end very fast.
