I had knee surgery to remove 20% of my meniscus 2 months ago. While doing therapy at days my knee has some bruising and is inflated. What should I do?

In brief: Be patient
It is normal to have some swelling even 2 months after surgery such as a menisectomy.
Make sure you follow the rice protocol - rest, ice, compression and elevation. The bruising could be just overdoing it at therapy. If the swelling persists or worsens, make a follow up appointment with your surgeon.
