Hi. In Mucoid degeneration with ganglion cyst try with medicines and physiotherapy for couple of months if pain is too severe and you have lost your movements then you can consider arthroscopy surgery where we reduce the bulk of the acl and drastically the pain will come down next day after surgery. All the best
