Our expert says:
Your injury can take 4 to 6 weeks to heal completely. I do suggest that you consult your doctor for x-rays of both your knees, as it is possible that you have fractured the patella. If a small fracture is present, the healing time can take much longer. In the interim, I suggest that you use Myprodol capsules, two every six hours, to alleviate pain, inflammation and swelling. You also have to apply a hot compress, followed by a ice pack, twice daily.
