Knee pain behind knee?? After meniscus surgery.

I had my meniscus shaved about 3-4 weeks ago. I have a cyst inbehind as well which is causing pain when knee is bent. But today I woke up ok was out and about then started to get sore behind knee (when not bent) came home and barely made it up my stairs...pain was so bad I could barely walk...felt like it was being pinched back there. I iced it and it feels alot better but still hurts. It's more to the inner side at the back than the middle. Any ideas what I have done? If not better tomorrow I will call my surgeons office.

Re: Knee pain behind knee?? After meniscus surgery.

Thought I would update . My knee was sore and swelling, when I saw my surgeon he said I was doing too much too soon. Because of how my meniscus tear was not only did they shave some but it was also tacked down. I was awake during my surgery but my sedative must have worked pretty good because I don't remember that part . Apparently it's a longer recovery and it's only been a few weeks, he said give it two months and see how I feel and if I am still having problems come back to see him.

Ah, meniscus repair is a bigger deal. Definitely rest and let that heal.

Good luck!
