I had an accident 6 months back ..by simply falling from a stool @ home. It was very painful and I could not bear my weight on that knee.
Dr said It was a knee ligament tear which after 25 days cast and using 3 month crutches was on a way to recover. I was even doing my physiotherapy sessions. now I can walk when its straight but still canít do activity like climbing staircase, squatting, running, walking fast etc with injured leg
So we did MRI scan and it is showing knee Meniscus tear. Dr is suggesting arthroscopic in which they will remove tore portion.
Can anybody suggest me is there any better alternative solution?
If not how long it takes to recover from such operation? Does it mean my leg will be perfect after operation?
Any long term risks involved?
And after operation do I need to use crutches again for some days? Iíll hate imagining myself again in those crutches?
How many days I should take off from my work?
I asked same Questions to my Dr but u know how casual they are .. I understand they donít hv tht much time to console everyone ..
but for me its my own dear leg
Please help me.
Thanking you in advance.
