I fell a month ago on black ice, and probably have a torn meniscus according to the doc who I will see on tuesday. I have a torn meniscus in my other knee, but it is asymtomatic. This one hurts like heck! for those of you that have had this experience, does it take longer than a month to get better, or should I get the surgery? This really ticks me off that it has happened this time of the year when I am most active. My other knee is torn from wear and tear over many years of walking funny due to a broken leg. Maybe that is why it doesn't hurt unless I do something to aggravate it. This one hasn't stopped hurting no matter what position I am in.
