My left knee has a torn cartilage which is really painful. I can't fully bend my knee when I lie down. Popping and locking as well. Surgery or not?

Possibly: Has torn cartilage been confirmed by an MRI? How long have you had symptoms? Have other treatments been tried, and did they help? If you have a torn meniscus that is causing significant pain, swelling or locking, then knee arthroscopy, a "scope, " can be helpful to remove or repair the torn meniscus.

Very painful knee popping! Can't bend for very long. Had a scope, no chondromalacia. They removed plica. Other ideas? Had pain for years, worsening

Diagnosis needed: Your symptoms sound like they are from the patello femoral joint. The first thing you need is an accurate diagnosis from a sports medicine doctor who has expertise in this area. Surgery is rarely necessary for most patello femoral problems and if it is recommended I would get at least one second opinion before going that route. Usually this problem can be helped with treatment but not cured. ...Read more

If: If you have not had an MRI I recommend you request one. It sounds like you may have a tear in one or multiple tendons, ligaments, or meniscus. If so, you will need surgery to clean the knee out so to speak and repair the damage. In the meantime you can request a steroid injection for the pain and inflammation.
Best of luck. ...Read more
