In the meantime, to keep my muscles strong around my knee, I am exercising
but nothing strenous. Contemplating using a regular knee brace
which has an opening around the patella, hope this will help when exercising and not cause any further damage. I have to see the physio tomorrow.
Still no news on my appointment with the orthoped - hope it comes through pretty soon. No visible swelling around the knee, maybe the ibrufen which I had taken for a week helped.
