Hello back in around November 16 i got knee injury. My doctor told me i probably torn my meniscus.  He sent me to see orthopedics... but i never went since i was told usually meniscus heals back .... well i still struggle going up the stairs... i can run and walk.... Now Today something happen with my knee that i got same pain all over again.... it like lock up and i can't move back my leg backward without pain..... i can walk but stairs again hurt alot. Does this sound like i will need surgery?

Hi there!

A meniscal injury is unlikely to heal itself. The locking up is likely to be due to the meniscal tear or a loose body. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. The decision for a surgery would depend on the severity of the condition.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
