And now I can just be standing there and my knee feels like it is really loose and feels like I hyperextended in, the knee pushes back. How ling should I wait to go to the doctor or should I continue to try and heal it myself. Thank you

Thank you for your response. I have made an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon but can't be seen for 12 days. What do I do to make sure that no more damage will be done then there already is. Do i get a brace so I can have some stability.
