JA: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?
Customer: nearly 3 weeks now no damage before

Customer: Hi no nothing else

Hi,

This is Dr Gupta,

I am sorry to hear about your symptoms,

Given that it has already been 3 weeks, I am not sure that we can do much without a physical consultation, the fact that this is still a problem suggests meniscal or ligament or cartilage injury

Early evaluation with your GP and a referral to an orthopedician with X-ray and MRI as needed are how we need to proceed now,

Let me know if you need more information,

Warm regards & stay safe,
