torn cartilage

17 year old lad here.

at the end of march this year i tore the cartilage in my left knee, i was put on the waiting list to have an mri scan to find out the extent of the damage. however, a couple of weeks back, i went to the orthopaedic and he told me that everything seemed to be fine.

earlier today, i was playing football and was very disappointed when i kicked the ball and i experienced the exact same pain i had when i first tore the cartilage. i havn't had surgery, mainly because the nhs don't seem to be bothered and i can't afford to go private.

does anybody know how long the usual recovery time is for a torn cartilage WITHOUT surgery, it is really getting me down.
