PCL Reconstruction

I had knee PCL reconstruction surgery before 1 year. Now, from last 15 days my knee is paining. my surgeon suggested to do the MRI. in MRI found that grade 2 horizontal tear in posterior horn of medial meniscus & PCL graft is normal. & my surgeon told that nothing to worry. with physiotherapy it will heal. is that ok?

Meniscal tears usually take 6 weeks to heal. We can wait for four more weeks, but if pain is more and if locking is present we have to do arthroscopy and excise the torn meniscus.
