The symptoms are likely to be due to inflammation which is likely to settle with time. I would suggest talking to your doctor about the anti-inflammatory medications and adequate pain control. Activities may be started after the initial inflammation settles down. Meanwhile I would suggest resting the knee and continuing with the ice-packs and anti-inflammatory medication for pain relief.
Hope this is helpful.
