Knee pain, MRI shows medial meniscus with mild effusion. Taking Etova and Kyrab. How much can I walk?

My Age -53 yrs - Male. I have a pain in my left knee . I had shown my X-Ray / MRI to many Doctors all of whom are Orthopeadicians. The MRI shows s/o grade -3 tier in posterior horn medial meniscus with mild effusion . Last doctor at Fortis Hospital in Mohali has recommended me cycling & pillow pressing exercises & gave medicine of ETOVA-ER 600 & KYRAB along with a tablet of Vitamins . If stay sitting there is no pain. But even after 2-3 days if i have to walk some distance the knee starts paining. I live on Ist Floor & my office is also on First Floor. In how much I can walk at least 1-2 Kms? Can I ever walk this distance of 2-3 kms? Is medicine correct?

whenever u have pain that too especially knee avoid walking and doing exercises. simple yoga and breathing helps you to keep fit. As being age factor can be your problem minimised by reducing your weight if you are overweight. also the body has its own way of healing power if it palns automatically takes rest. Also in yoga simple knee rotation clockwise and anticlock wise will by bending the knee wiil be the advice.
