Patient : I fell about a week ago down some concrete stairs and landed all of my body weight on my right patella. I had an xray and my patella isn't fractured or anything. My doctor gave me an immobilizer to wear for a week. I'm no longer wearing it but am continuing to wear an ace bandage. When I walk me knee seems to pop and whether I'm sitting, standing, or walking; though worse when walking, I'm having a lot of pain on the right, outside of my patella. My knee is giving out a lot as well. Should I get an MRI?
