Meniscus tear and Bone Bruise Questions.
« on: September 14, 2017, 03:36:39 PM »
Aloha,
Has anyone out there had an MRI that showed a tear, (according to the Dr. that read it wear it was preformed). Went to the specialist who told me he saw NO tear, but that I had a Bone Bruise? Can't run, and I am elevating it, icing, and wear a knee sleeve. Does this sound familiar to anyone? My PCP recommends PT. What do you think?
Aloha,
Sue

I would go the conservative route for a while. Meniscus repair operations have very mixed outcomes. Let us know.
