Hello Jeff and thanks for the query
Yes surely you will be able to do your properly. But you have to follow certain precautions when you are in pain;
1. Keep the leg straight as much as possible or bear long knee brace
2. Wear elastic bandage
3. Do alternate hot and cold fermentation.
4. Do regular exercise and physiotherapy
as advised by your physiotherapist.
5. Use analgesic
and anti-inflammatory drugs in pain.
6. Take complete bed rest in worse condition.
Hope this will help you. Go for MRI scan again if you have no relief or consult your treating doctor.
