Knee Effusion (water On the Knee

I went to emergency because my knee had swollen and it was hard to walk and the doctor told me I had water on the knee. It isn't necessarily hurting but stiff and it makes it hard to walk.


He didn't drain it or anything. Should he have?


He told me it came from favoring my right leg and gave me some leg exercises to do

it seems to me it there's water on your knee it should be drained. He also prescribed me some anti-inflammatory medication and pain pills

what do you think
