What Are The Long Term Effects Partial Posterior Medial Meniscus Removal
Soon: A well performed arthroscopy with partial medial meniscectomy does not damage anything and merely removes a painful mechanical tear. As soon as the knee calms down and overall strength has returned, return to sports is safe. This can be anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months, depending on the person. It can be very quick, but variable depending on situation. ...Read more

How long after ACL reconstruction (patellar autograft) with medial meniscus repair and lateral meniscectomy can one start taking anti-inflammatories?
I just had the posterior half of the medial meniscus removed I'm a trauma nurse how long before the pain lessens?
Depends: It depends somewhat from person to person. Most of the perioperative pain from the surgery should be gone by 2-4 weeks and then you should usually be a lot better. If you are 56 years old and had a partial menisectomy and still have pain 12 weeks or more after your arthroscopy, I suspect you might have had some underlying chondromalacia as well. Thank you. ...Read more

Can post medial meniscectomy pain give pain only to lateral side of knee after 6yrs meniscectomy? Fresh MRI shows medial meniscus retear in remnant?
H/o medial meniscectomy 6yrs back, now pain on lateral side of knee? Fresh MRI show medial meniscus retear in remnant and PF wear? Need Surgery again?
Arguable: Recent articles show knee exercises are as good or better than surgery for knee arthritis and meniscal tears treated with use and quad strengthening show almost the same results as surgery. If Aleve (naproxen) and good athletic shoes offer comfort, I'd avoid further surgery. Take Chondroitin daily and hope for the best. ...Read more

Does a extruded medial meniscus towards the posterior root need surgery? Is this a tear? Please help
What does medial meniscus with extrusion mean? It also says rupture of the posterior root is this a tear?

I have a horizontal oblique tear of lateral of the posterior horn of medial meniscus with complex tear in body of anterior horn of medial menicus
Does avulsed medial meniscus the same as an extrusion? Is the extrusion the same as displace medial meniscus of the posterior root? Explain please
Ok: Avulsion describes an injury pattern when something has been "pulled off". Displacement means that it has moved from its normal position. An extrusion describes a certain type of displacement in which the inner part has displaced beyond the outer part. Theses are terms that are easier to understand visually. I would encourage you to go through your films with your doctor and for understanding. ...Read more
