Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the knee condition that you describe without examining it. If you are worried, you can consider taking a second opinion and then proceed with further management. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest.
Take care.
