How do I get rid of knee pain after surgery for a torn meniscus over 1 year ago?

Arthroscopy. If you have a meniscal tear and it hasn't improved after a year it probably won't you will then need to undergo an arthroscopic procedure to correct the problem. Then your pain should be improved. If you already had a procedure, then the question is how much of your pain is from arthritis or do you have a new injury.
Pain. As stated , probable need for another surgery. See your surgeon.

How long does knee pain last after arthroscopic sugery I just had one done 8 weeks ago for a torn meniscus?

Several weeks. It is common for a knee to have some pain for several weeks after surgery. Ask your surgeon as they are in the best position to address your particular situation. Read more...
Depends on DJD. Most good quality studies show that short and long term recovery from knee arthroscopy is directly related to the amount of arthritis seen at surgery. Knees with minimal arthritis recover from simple partial menisectomy in 3-4 weeks, those with more advanced arthritis can take up to 8-12 weeks. If longer than 12 weeks, the problem may be the arthritis and not the meniscal tear. Read more...

Is it possible that I can have a torn meniscus and or ligament tear even though the MRI came back clean? I am constantly have knee pain and buckling

Unlikely. If an MRI did not show any abnormality of the meniscus or ligaments then it would be very unlikely that you have a tear. Like everything, there are false positives and false negatives, but a "completely clean" MRI likely means that the answer to your question is no. Read more...
See details. A normal MRI (if the reading is correct) makes tears unlikely. However, the symptom of buckling is impressive. See the orthopedist and discuss whether an mr-arthrogram is indicated. This is a more sensitive test than the plain mri. Read more...

My knee has been hurting since saturday. I am experiencing knee pain and my knee pops when I bend it. Could it be a torn meniscus?

Possibly. However, most 25-year olds that have meniscal tears have a history of trauma- a sports injury, a twist, a fall, etc. Abnormal tracking of the kneecap, an articular cartilage problem (this type covers bone), an enlarged plica are possibilities. The location of popping can give you clues. Is it one side or behind the kneecap? If I can help, then join my care team at www.healthtap.com/dr-clarkeholmes. Read more...
