Greetings,Thank you for your question.I am Dr. Su S.I will try my best to help you.
Is there any swelling, redness?
At which point of knee exactly?
What treatment was given in the hospital?
Hello again,I was waiting for response from you.I am very sorry for his symptoms.As X ray did not find any fracture, there is no bony injury.It can be a soft tissue injury.Pain may increase after sometime.It can take sometime to heal.Please try to keep the knee at rest now.You can apply ice.Ice needs to be applied after wrapping in a towel.Please do not apply directly.It can be applied several times a day.You can give him tylenol or motrin.Those will help to reduce the pain.If the symptom continues, I would advise to get him examined by an orthopedic doctor.Sometimes, ligament or cartilage injury can be there.This may not come up in X ray.MRI of knee can be taken.I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating. Wish him healthy life.Regards.
You are welcome. Immobilization would help in healing. Tylenol is paracetamol in UK. Motrin is ibuprofen. Wish him early recovery.
