Hi Doc... I have a knee diagnosis of 'meniscus tear' and the orthopaedic told to have a surgery to remove the torn meniscus... I was Diagnosed before 4 months, and due to date issues I couldn't have a surgery yet... Does leaving a torn meniscus for long time like 5-6 months cause 'ARTHRITIS' in knee . I still have date issues and I am thinking of having a meniscus surgery after 2-3 months...(after my exams) I have a normal lifestyle ,I walk a lot... Does Leaving a 'TORN MENISCUS' inside the knee cause any damage to 'ARTICULAR CARTILAGE'...leading to Arthritis...???
