I fell a month ago and hurt my knee. I've been taking care

Customer Question

I fell a month ago and hurt my knee. I've been taking care of it at home. It still hurts and is swollen. Should I go to the doctor even though it happened a month ago? Or is that pointless and I should just wait?

As you have had knee issue for last month , with no recovery and still swelling and pain , so it would be ideal to have X Ray knee to see what is going wrong , so that appropriate treatment may be offered to you .

Wait and see will not be a wise decision at this point .

Please have a examination .

Good luck .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
