Torn Meniscus, but no pain upon impact
Hello,
Two years ago, a sharp impact after doing a front flip (I do gymnastics and parkour), I felt a sharp pain in my right knee. After 3-4 months of babying it, the only pain I felt was an aching pain in my knee when I bent it completely after working out. Just yesterday I had an MRI and found out today that I have a meniscus tear near the back of my knee, and a baker's cyst. During the past 2 years, other than those first 3-4 months, I've been very active and have continued doing my high impact activities, and I mean very high impact (flipping off of 5 foot high obstacles, etc.). I have absolutely no pain during the activities that I do. I'm leaving the country for 13 weeks very soon so I am not going through surgery until I return. I'm wondering if it is safe for me to continue my activities, being that I have no pain at all during them, it's just the stretching afterwords.

Thank you in advance

Hi there!

A surgery is not necessarily required for either a meniscal tear or a baker’s cyst. If there are no symptoms as such, specific management would not be required. The post activity discomfort is unlikely to be related to these; though it would be best to discuss the level of activity that you could undertake and the expected prognosis and management plan, with your treating orthopedician after taking into consideration the extent of injury/ tear.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
