Knee Arthroscopy - Lateral Meniscus Tear

I had a left knee arthroscopy today for a lateral meniscus tear. From the MRI the doctor said the location of the tear didn’t get enough blood supply so I decided to “cut” the problem area.

After the knee arthroscopy today he told me the tear was larger than what the MRI showed and he didn’t suture it or remove anything. I was furious because I felt since he had me on the table he should’ve done something instead of closing me up and putting my body through another round of this.

Any thoughts?
