How bad is my knee injury?

I hurt my knee in basketball a few days ago, I've been to the hospital and they think its either a sprained, partial tear or full tear or my mcl (medial collateral ligament) I've been looking up a lot about it myself but I'm trying to figure out if its torn or not myself. 1) I can't put any pressure on it 2) it's pretty swollen 3) I'm very limited in mobility .. Do you think it's completely torn?

sounds like a good bet that it is... i blew out my acl in highschool, it may have you on crutches for awhile, you may even need surgery which will lay you up for a good while, id say stay off it as best as you can, ice,ice,ice, get the tests that will be definitive and hope... don't worry if you are an athlete you may be out a season but you can recover with surgery and plenty of solid pt... good luck

The only way you will know if you have a meniscus tear is to have an MRI... My lateral meniscus is torn and is very, very painful... Please get the proper tests done and see an orthopedist before something other than a tear, if this is what it is, occurs and you cannot play sports for awhile, if ever again... Feel better...
