So it is a meniscus but it is in the inside of your knee? Do you mean it is facing toward your right knee? Not operable, I take it. What did the doc say to do or take?
Chris – all knees have a meniscus! It’s when they’re torn that’s a problem! 🙂
Maybe, probably torn. Options are cortisone which never has worked in my body or surgery. Have had this surgery before on other knee. Walt Beaver will do it and he is great. Quick recovery. Dancing on tables in my future.
Jane just avoid the poles until you are 100%,
Not such bad news, Jane. My left knee meniscus tear required surgery – easy outpatient w physical therapy for 6wks after; right knee cortisone shot worked and no surgery. Much easier to deal w a tear than replacement surgery!
Although surgery is not fun, the menisicus repair is not bad. Hope you’ll be 100% in no time.
We may try cortisone after the MRI.
I just want to second the opinion about the poles…
