Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response

I have studied your case.

Prognosis is poor in your case now.
But vigorous physiotherapy with yoga and if require further manipulation under anaesthesia may help.
MRI /CT scan will help in confirming intra/extra articular stiffness.

I will advise to consult orthopaedic surgeon to assess for associated injury.
I can help you more if you can send/attach report of your knee x-ray.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care.
