Knee pain, maybe broke one knee but other hurts


Q: Hi, my name is lucas and im 21 years old around 4 years ago i fell off the handle bars of a bicycle and hit my knee, it hurt on impact but then felt okay i started to walk home but within 2 minutes i had to limp, then had to use the bike for support and then ended up having to ask my friends to carry as the pain was so bad. once i got home i practically crawled into my living room, stood up, then just fainted from the pain..i didn't call my dad as i was sweating and paranoid he would think i was on drugs, (stupid,i know) but then i didn't get it checked out or anything (even more stupid) and borrowed crutches from a friend for a about 2 months until i could walk on it, and to be honest the pain is still there but my real problem now is my other knee. i am scared i have maybe damaged it from all the extra pressure it really is sore and feels flared up all the time for the past month, i am going to the doctor's tomorrow but just thought i would ask for a opinion :) thank you :)
