Depends on dx.: Whether you have to have your knee 're- scoped' depends on your present diagnosis . If you have retorn your meniscus then probably yes. If your knee is hurting because of concomitant knee pathology ( associated arthritic changes) then possibly not... Other treatments may be helpful. Get a precise diagnosis from your surgeon and realistic expectations of prognosis . Best of luck!
