Hello Andriano, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Injury to the knee is the name of a large group of various possible types of injuries that can occur in the knee. These injuries can be:
cracks in the knee bone dislocation (shift) of the knee joint tears in the knee that are in the knee tears in the cartilage of the knee joint (meniscus) tears in the tendons (tissue that connects muscles and bones) of the knee and several other conditions Due to the possibility of injury you experience quite a lot, even though the injury has passed 2 weeks, it is highly recommended that you check your knee condition again to the doctor for re-evaluation. The doctor may ask you to do some physical examination and also X-rays of your knee joint to help determine the possible location of the injury to your knee. After that, the doctor will determine what treatment you should go through, and whether you will be referred to an orthopedic doctor or not to get operative therapy. Even if you don't need surgery, you might be advised to do rehabilitation together with a medical rehabilitation specialist to help speed up the recovery of your knee function.
How long it takes to recover fully in a knee injury, until now there is no exact time and the time also depends on the type of injury and therapy obtained. Some types of injury may only take a few days to a few weeks to experience complete healing, but other types of injuries (such as ligament tears) that are accompanied by surgery may take longer (several months) to experience complete healing.
Therefore, for the time being you should first limit your activities to activities that greatly increase the load on your knees (for example, exercise, and go down stairs). Use knee support brace when it feels helpful. Carry out a rehabilitation program as recommended by your doctor to help speed up recovery, and the consumption of medicines as recommended by your doctor.
I hope this helps.
