Thanks for posting your query and uploading the X-ray report. I have read it in detail.

I am sorry that you suffered this injury. Fortunately, there are no major changes noted on the x-ray.

The x-ray shows degenerative changes which are likely to be present at your age.

You need symptomatic treatment in the form of hot fomentation and over the counter analgesics like Tylenol for relief of pain and to arrest further inflammation.

Please consider taking this and adequate rest for few days will get you back in health soon.

Please do write back if you have further queries to ask.

I wish you speedy recovery.
