Orthopedic Knee Pain, joint effusion

Patient : Good Day Doctor, I need your advice, I got knee pain a year ago, when i was sitting on my knees for more than half an hour and doing some work, as i standup, i didnot feel any sound (for knee ligament or something) but the day after pain rose, and Doctor did x-ray and MRI, and then Joint Effusion was found (Water on the knee). I took medicines for about a month, but after all this, i got better, but after 3-4 months, i got swelling again may be 2-3 times in two years. But it goes away within a week. The issue is Doctor says do exercise because my thigh muscle has got weaker, and unfortunately I am not doing regular exercise, which is my fault. I need your advise is this the only solution? Im just a bit confused, I mean i want to play football, i used to play, please help me to get my strong muscle for thigh and knee back as soon as possible. I'll be really greatful for your help. Thankyou Doctor, Asim Baig
