Please help!! miniscus injury in 13 yr olds knee

i posted before about 13 yr old daughters leg being broken below the knee. They took the cast off after 2 weeks and was complaining about a pins and needles feeling when ahe would put a sock or shoe on it so not being imopressed with the surgeon she was sent to i took her to her ped who by the way did a much more in detail examination of her leg than the surgeon ever did. Anyway he say she has injured the miniscus in her knee he explained all abot it and said she needed an MRI. So we are waiting to hear when that will be and she is still on the crutches.Our daughter has had people tell her the only way to fix this type of injury is with surgery is this true? The surgeon before also tolsd us that she doesn't need physio but my mom who goes to an awesome therapist says she should be having physio especially more so know with this type of injury who is right?Is it ok for daughter to try limping around the house without crurches or will she do more damage to the miniscus by walking like that on it.Any help and answers would greatly help!!!!
