Re: Knee inflammation

It does sound like a meniscus tear. I have torn my meniscus in both knees. There really isn't an alternative to surgery. If you don't have it operated on, the tear will just increase in size and become more of a problem. It is not a major surgery and does not take an extremely long time to recover.
