can someone tell me if the doctor is going to ring me on***********

-Sorry to hear about this. I am trying to contact you on phone as well but some error has occurred in the system and I will be talking to you soon

This is most likely a ligament injury which is giving you such pain. At the age of 76 these supporting structure of the knee joints can get weak and get damaged easily by such minor injury. Meniscal injury is another possibility although the weight bearing is usually compromised. The most likely problem here is an ACL tear. You should take some anti inflammatory like Ibuprofen with Omeprazole. Avoid excessive weight bearing. Use ice and knee support .You will need to see the doctor if the problem does not get better in a few days time

Good luck
