tear in in MLC and bakers cyst

HI, I have a tore MLC and a bakers cyst ,about 6 weeks ago I was going down dark hall dog under feet stop fast
because dog yelled, I thought I pulled back of leg ,7 days later woke up knee twice the size and water on it. Got MRI  said It needs to be cleaned inside. I am 60 yrs old and have a heart prob, SVT, Af and good old syncope with it. I am trying to let it heal with time , use it some just not too much, ride carts a Walmart ect. I can still hear and feel it crack at times, when I turn it a curtain way and sit for too long it locks-up on me and gives me griff . How much time will this take?Doc says time will tell about surgery or not. Will it take Six more weeks or six months, how will I know when to go back or just keep waitting!


                                                                              Thanks

Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. Conservative management is usually tried for 3-6 months before a review is considered. I would suggest discussing the situation and the expected prognosis in detail with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
