hello th-hovla,
Since there was some trauma from your history
You first need to take X-Ray AP and Lateral view of affected knee joint. Get it to an orthopedician
For symptom relief you need to be in rest, slight foot elevation with pillow, cold compression, and analgesics like aceclofenac + Parcetamol is enough.
Take care
