I have an appt to see my dr so he can make a recommendation for an ortho. My medial meniscus in my right is torn all the way through, and has been for about 2 yrs. Now, I'm in quite a bit of pain and my knee don't perform like it should. It has taken me this long because of having no ins. Now my medicare kicked in on Dec. 1st. Thank God!!
If they remove the torn part, the recovery is quicker. Full recovery usually takes at least 6 weeks. If the meniscus is repaired, the recovery period is longer because there are more physical restrictions after surgery. I hope this helped.
