Grade 2(maybe) sprain not healing
« on: April 16, 2014, 02:44:30 PM »
hi! On Feb. 18, I slipped on ice and fell in a grotesque fashion. I immediately felt stiffness and pain-- but waited 6 days to see a doctor. She examined my knee and sent me to an OS. I had a MRI which showed that the MCL was stretched but not torn (so maybe Grade 1?). Doctor said should be healed in a couple of months and after 6 weeks of physical therapy. (Btw I was on crutches- no weight bearing- for almost 3 weeks-- and in a brace for 3 weeks). I am officially at the two month mark and at the end of my physical therapy and I still don't feel right. I can't crouch down or it REALLY hurts. My leg still feels kind of loose. Both my doctor and physical therapist feel that it IS healing. Does this sound like something is wrong? I am healing too slowly?? My doctor is not great at answering questions. HELP!!
