Cartilage repair for torn surface cartilage...pain??
« on: November 22, 2011, 08:28:59 PM »
Hello all.

I had an MPFLr 6 months ago and I still have a ton of pain due to a pretty angry knee cap.  The MRI showed large fissures in the cartilage underneath my knee (from prior to surg). My OS recommended a simple scope to clean it up more and to maybe add synthetic stuff.

I really don't know much about the surgery, but I researched the heck out of the MPFLr before I had that done, so I'm going to do the same for this.  I know it's not that big of a deal, I just want to know what after surgery/recovery will be like!
