Post Meniscectomy - pain returning
« on: August 13, 2010, 07:44:15 PM »
Hi all

I had a partial meniscectomy over 7 weeks ago, it all went well and after 2 weeks the pain was a lot better.  Recently, however, the pain has returned - the exact same pain I had when my meniscus was torn.  I know it is probably early days, but I had a good 3 weeks without any pain, and for some reason it's been sore this past week.  The tear happened due to walking with bad alignment throughout my life.  I haven't seen the OS yet, but really want to go back with positive news when I do.  Is this normal after such a small surgery?
