Well, I am just recovering from my fusion, and - yep - the wife was going up the steps into the library yesterday, she heard this ungodly sound coming from her right knee - and was immediately in pain.
It is very similar to the torn meniscus she had on her left knee several years ago. We see the doc in a couple of hours - in the interim I bought her a walker last night. She is getting around slowly today - some less pain.
My question -
A few years back we were reading that one of the now acceptable options for a torn meniscus is to do nothing - that, in fact, it may be better than arthroscopy. Her last arthroscopy did not go well, with some complications.
So, I am asking if anyone here has experienced a torn meniscus, and if so, what treatment options were offered, and what were taken?
Any input appreciated.
