Patient : I have recently injured the lateral meniscus in the front of my right knee. It is showing no visible swelling I have been wearing a knee brace for the last two days and trying to treat it without getting surgery. How long should I give it before I go see a doctor to ask about surgery? With my age being 20 should I go with the repair instead of the Meniscectomy?
Could I get back to water skiing and wake boarding next year if I do the natural recovery? Will I need a brace for doing that?
