Not very common: Usually menisectomy it is not very painful, few things could possibly make painful to have infection after that or the surgeon found other problems in the joint at the time of the surgery.

Altered Knee Forces: Most patients in your age group do well after partial meniscectomy for a displaceable meniscal tear. The loss of meniscal tissue alters the load on the adjacent cartilage and bone. In some patients, this increase in bone loading may cause pain and even bone marrow lesions on mri. In some situations, pain can improve with rehabilitation and bracing. If the pain persists, discuss with your surgeon.
