Have swelling and pain on knee. How to get relief? - Online Doctor Chats
May i know ur age ?
I just felt down last month
and how long have u had this issue ?
past 45 days
while playing cricket i feel instability
the swelling increase with the day ?
does it decrease with taking rest ? or stay stable all time ?
whenever i play cricket it start swelling
and if i take rest then no issues
I consult a doctor
He said that its fine
and i took the x XXXXXXX but in that there is no issues
the pressure of the bandage , will reduce the swelling and help in healing
Xrays will not detect any sift tissue damage , like tendon tears
currently i have no swelling
alllow at least 3 months time , for the complete recovery
I should not play?
do not do any activities that increase the pain including games
yes, do not play
if u do play, healing will be dealyed and you may cause more damage
this can clearly define any tendon or ligament tear
even in such cases, rest will be adviced to allow proper recovery
in case that is not helpful, and the pain is excessive and you have diffculty walking or working, then it could mean u have joint instability
and in such a case, surgery to fix the broken tendon might be advided
Hope u followed my advice , any doubts ?
so on the whole I need to take rest till 3 Months
yes, that is right
I have no problem while walking
but i hane problem while stretching with my damaged leg
will follow your instructions
if u keep playing, then u will end up with more damage
Thanks for your time
taking rest now, will prevent that , and help in proper healing
U r welcome
Great thanks again
take care and have a good day
