    Default Knee sprain?

    So I was kicking hay bales off the stack tonight and the stack fell out from under me. The whole wy down I was thinking I can not afford together hurt. Tried to walk it off but every time I put weight on my knee it gives out. Went to the dr who said oh it's probably sprained. If its not better in two weeks come back? REALLY? I literally can not walk. I finally explained to him that I had 17 horses and a 3yo human to take care of by myself. So he gave me a brace and crutches and told me to call a pt.

    Vent over, but really how long am I going to be lame? My daughters dad comes home Friday and I have help lined up until then, but he can't handle the youngsters.

    Aargh I am so dumb!

    Ice is your friend!!! And traumeel, the cream and tablets, but if you can get the liquid it's the best!!!

    Hope you feel better soon, knee injuries suck! It's hard not to, but try to not overdo it, it will just take longer to heal if you do
