In brief: Depends

A large portion of the meniscus has vitrually no blood supply and limited ability to heal.
If surgery is required, your prognosis would depend on how much meniscus is removed (if not repairable), location, quality of remaining meniscus, condition of the cartilage covering the bone in the knee, age, and activity level.
