Hi Sniper,

I had a lateral release and had problems after. Alot of catching and pain, for 6 months . Had a Mri and it showed i tore my meniscus for no reason, and had a loose fragment. I would go to your surgeon tell him your symptoms, and hopefully he will order a mri to see what is going on. :)
2006 right knee surgery, meniscus
