My Dad has had a knee injury in the past that took forever to heal also, Not sure what it was diagnosed as but in the end he tried this thing called OSMO Patch that helps reduce swelling and fluid which really helped him no end. They have a page on their website with some knee conditions so check it out. If I were you I would probably go and insist on having an MRI done though just to be on the safe side

It is possible that you have a meniscus tear. The best thing to be doing is putting cold compresses on it to reduce the inflammation and swelling. This will also help relieve related pain. In order to heal, in case it is a meniscus tear, you need blood flow. The knee already has very little blood flow, which is why it is a slow healer. There is a Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST) that I highly recommend. It is an energy web within a knee wrap that promotes the circulation you need, deep down below the dermal level, in order to heal. There are also wraps that come as a ColdCure product, which has cold gels that form to the Knee perfectly. The website also talks about tendon damage and the healing process involved. I hope this information helps. If you don't treat and heal it, you are potentially re-injuring it constantly.
