Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Aashish Raghu's  Response
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You need to keep your knee in a proper brace or cast as advised by your Orthopaedician. You probably require surgery as the meniscus is damaged. Cardigen is herbal supplement which is ideally not advised without proper studies on it's effects. Take pain killers as your Doctor advised and consult regarding the probable need for surgical cure.
