A week or so ago, maybe more, he twisted his knee at work. As he works retail and stands all day, he didn't think it was a big deal. Since then though it's been swollen and painful the more he stands. He went to the doctor last week and was referred to an ortho. That appointment was this morning. Good news...he's off till Friday (Yay) which actually turns into off till next Tuesday as he took this weekend off. But....he has to get an MRI tomorrow to assess the damage. Both the doctor and the ortho think he tore some ligaments. Stupid question but I've never dealt with knee stuff....is torn ligaments something that will probably require surgery?
