Hi, I have OA (minor) in both knees, however a meniscus tear (medial/inside of the knee) is allegedly stopping me from being able to bend my knee back, and giving me some pain, swelling, esp. after playing tennis on hard court or have been on my feet alot (or wearing high heels) - if I wear high heels and walk too much I find the whole knee joint goes stiff. When not in pain due to any of the preceeding, a lack of mobility is most noticeable during yoga, when I can not sit in "child's resting pose" due to 1 knee not being able to bend fully, and not due to lack of flexibility. My other leg bends no problem. Something is impeding the bend in that one knee. I had a pre-surgery consult today and was told the surgery was very easy, and I'd be tickety boo in 6 weeks. But after reading all this, wondering if its worth the bother. Seems like alot can go wrong. I am mid-50's, moderately active, recreational level tennis player. What do you think?
