Hello you dont have to suufer for weeks due to your knee pain.
consult your doctor and get MRI of the knee done which will show the ligament injury clearly. then you can plan whether surgery is needed or not.TC
For knee ligament lesion, use a crepe bandage for your knee and give rest to your knee joint. Do minimum of work from knee. try hot fomentation and local pain killing ointments. Hope all this will help you a lot.
