Dr. David Trettin answered:

How long is recovery time for mcl and meniscus surgery?

Depends

Extremity-joint-knee
Arthroscopic meniscal repair or resection is a common procedure.Most adults are 'recovered ' by 6 wks.Unususal to have an MCL repair w/ meniscus surgery by itself.Alot of times the MCL can heal on its own or in a brace.If it is completely torn and quite unstable(w/ACL intact) it may take another 4-6 wks or longer for complete healing.Again, unusual combination here..Good Luck!

How long is an acl, mcl, and meniscus surgery?

Depends

Mcl
This depends on several factors such as type of graft used and whether the meniscus is repaired versus debrided. On average the surgery is 1.5 to 2 hours.

I torn my acl, meniscus, and sprained my mcl. Will I be able to do gymnastics again without reconstructive surgery?

Without the reconstructive surgery I doubt very much you could compete in Gymnastic.

Is is it better to get surgery sooner or after some physical therapy for a torn acl/mcl and meniscus?

Sooner

Physical_therapy
Discuss with your orthopedic surgeon. However, any physical therapy runs the risk of making a torn tendon or ligament worse.

I tore my MCL, ACL and Meniscus in Jan and now im starting therapy to bend my knee will I be able to fully bend it again before surgery?

Maybe

Knee
Depends primarily on the size, type and location of the meniscal tear. The torn cartilage may block your motion or simply cause too much pain when trying to bend the knee.

What is the Recovery time for acl reconstruction using hamstring, plus mcl repair plus lateral meniscus repair plus impact fracture of tibial plateau?

Difficult to say

Forearm_fractures
You describe a fairly significant knee operation and set of injuries. It's hard to say without examining you and reviewing your studies. Your orthopedic surgeon is in the best position to answer this question. It's safe to say that your recovery will last for several months with a lot of physical therapy.

How long till I can play rugby and figure skate I have a second degree mcl and meniscus sprain I have to see a sports medicine doctor when can I play?

See on ortho

Mcl
Healing from a 2nd degree MCL (incomplete tear) will take 6-12 wks, but usually can play with brace at about 6 wks depending upon healing/symptoms. Meniscus sprain: contusion?? IF so, should be fine by the time MCL heals.

Dr. Jason M. Boyer answered:

Recovery time for ACL, Meniscus and MCL Release?

Just an estimate

Meniscus
While hard to be specific without knowing more of the details, from the list you are asking about, the ACL is likely the limiting factor. The healing and therapy after an ACL reconstruction is 6-9 months. The meniscus and MCL will heal during this time, but the ACL usually takes the longest.

Dr. Brian Sabb answered:

Is my knee pain due to mcl or meniscus?

Need more info

Mri
Hi, Knee pain can come from multiple sources including the 2 ligaments that you mentioned. Physical exam tests can sometimes distinguish the source of pain. MRI is a great exam that can differentiate between injury to the meniscus versus injury to the MCL. But, just seeing the injury on the MRI does not mean that the abnormality is the pain generator. The exam and the MRI complement each other.
