Hi, I play touch footy, suffered a nasty bent wrong way knee injury a year ago; saw a surgeon who suggested a knee arthroscopy (can't even say it properly still
). A year on, my knee is fine, I play touch footy, run around, etc without any problems, but locking sometimes does occur only when I am in a crouch position and swivel on my knees, so it rarely happens. It seems (from what the surgeon said) the meniscus is torn.
Now, considering my knee is fine for doing pretty much everything, should I still have the arthroscopy done or live with some locking from time to time, save some money obviously.. or certainly in my best interest to get it done? Maybe am a little nervous, but in 2 minds whether one should get it done or be okay with it. Of course, my knees and sport and important.
What would you do?
