Hi..faruk.., the above report suggestive that there is ligament injury in two ligament, anterior and lateral collateral ligament.. you need to give complete rest, only minimal mobility if necessary..
if the life style is too busy ,then its choice for surgery..., but the injury will take around 6 months to heal completely..

Take care..
