Yes: If pain is mild and walking causes no discomfort, standing is permissible. Try to take breaks often and elevate your leg if possible. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

yes but if you are young you will likely need an arthroscopy at some point the tear will likely get worse especially if you are young and active very few can heal
