I STILL HAVE PAIN IN MY KNEE & COULD NOT PUT MY BODY WEIGHT ON THE LEG . WHAT U SUGGEST 4 EARLY RECOVERY ??& WHAT PRECAUTION I SHOULD TAKE & 4 HOW MUCH TIME. KINDLY GIVE YOUR VALUABLE SUGGESTION.
Thanks for query,
You need to undergo MRI to rule out any meniscus tear along with Ligamental injury.
Weight bearing on injured knee should not be done for at least 3-4 weeks.
Consult your doctor he will guide you .
Have a nice day.
