Swollen Knee on the interior side

Patient : Hi, I fell and hurt my knee. Some days after it became more swollen. I went to the doc and had an MRI. he said I had hurt my miniscus, but not torn it. I have crutches and a velcro knee brace. Just staying off it and trying to keep it straight. What else should I do? I am in China so it's a bit hard to communicate. Ice it? ( they said not to but I read elsewhere you should )
Symptoms:  Swollen knee, sore to touch. Swelling is on the inner kneee.
