I hope someone can help. A couple months ago i slipped and fell and my knee felt out of place ( ive had this happened a few time in my life and eventually the cap always goes back to where it needs to ) It was starting to get better then i had sqatted down and it fellt someone kind of pop and then it just got worse again and never improved. There was pain and LOTS of grinding. I went to a well know surgeon in my area who did an MRI and told me i had a menicus tear and they scheduled surgery. Due to the surgeons schedule the surgery wasnt until almost two months after the MRI. When i woke up from surgery they said that there was no tear. They said it could have either healed or there was no tear to begin with ( which would no explain all the issues i had with my knee before the surgery) But i am now 3 weeks post surgery or which techinally was a scope since they did not to the repair and I am still having issues. I can not bend my knee properly, I get very still and still have to ice it daily. If i did not need a repair, wouldnt i be much more improved 3 weeks after just a scope? They said 4-6 weeks recovery and i am in physial therapy twice a week. If there was no tear why such a recovery?
