In March 2021, the left and right knees began to suffer from secondary pain. I had broken injuries before and had a film to check. The doctor suggested surgical treatment. It is still the same until now. I haven't taken any drug treatment, and the doctor didn't prescribe medicine, and didn't say what medicine to take. Is surgical treatment good or conservative treatment?
Hello, according to your description and the examination results, it is suggested that you can treat the lateral discoid meniscus of the knee conservatively first. Avoid excessive joint weight-bearing and flexion and extension activities at ordinary times. Some drugs for repairing cartilage can be taken orally, such as chondroitin sulfate or glucosamine. You can also do some microwave RF physiotherapy. If the symptoms do not improve and occur repeatedly, you can perform arthroscopic surgery.
