Ask the doctor for help, thank you.
Good morning, thanks for the question
In cases of meniscus tears, the recovery time depends on the severity of the injury, but generally it takes about 3 months to fully recover after the meniscus repair surgery. During the recovery period it is very natural if the patient feels certain symptoms provided that they are still in normal condition and not a severe complication. Symptoms are still felt generally because the tissue needs time to heal after injury and after invasive action, in this case surgery. Beware if there are complaints of fever, fluid production from scars, swelling, or smelling pus from the scars. These conditions must be treated immediately by a doctor.
Proper physiotherapy can greatly help to speed up the healing process, increase joint space, and regain knee strength. Therefore do further consultation for the physiotherapy plan going forward.
That's all, hope you can help
