Also do not forget to thank the doctors.

Such a disease (purulent gonarthritis I suspect still initially) to be treated only in the hospital and only with full restriction of movements in the joint due to gypsum / orthosis with movement on crutches
"Cured" joint (otherwise I can not characterize, since the treatment is not completely clear and logical) continue to treat further difficult without an explicit assessment of clinical symptoms
+ to this I recommend OAK + leukoformula + ESR, CRP (quantitative), procalcitonin
MRI within the age limit, at this stage is not informative in relation to the diagnosis

Most likely in this case, it is worth considering the issue of surgical treatment, the form of which can be determined after a microbiological study of joint fluid (seeding).
