I had left knee arthroscopic surgery for menisco-capsular seperation of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus on Aug. 19, 2003. My left knee bothers me every day. Walking stairs is not the same and if a wake up and it feels like nothing is wrong with it that day after being on it I start to feel it. Sitting down to long is irritating and standing to long is also. This is after almost 6 months of rehab. I went to the doctor today for a post op visit and he tells me it may always bother me now, wear a sleeve on it and pop anti inflammatories. It bothers me more now than it did before the operation. I'm 37 6'0" 165 lbs. so I have no access weight. All of this because I got hit from behind sitting at a stop sign. A little bump on the fender and a bum knee for life.
