Hello,
I inured my knee 3 weeks ago sliding on ice. I went to the emergency room..had X rays was told nothing broke but due to swelling something is wrong. Put in immobilizer and crutches and to follow up with ortho. I saw ortho 5 days later..they drained 30 cc of fluid and tested me for gout..ra…lupus and infection. Everything came cackling normal. I then saw ortho again ..though this time it was my normal doctor who had done previous surgery. He thought it was a torn meniscus so ordered an mri. Got the mri results yesterday…tpf. I am in a brace. I was not told no weight bearing. Everything I have read says no weight bearing. My knee is still swollen and painful…is it normal for a doctor to allow you full weight on tpf?
