My daughter is a competitive gymnast that has just been diagnosed with a stress fracture and meniscus tear in her right knee. The doctor wants to do surgery to repair the meniscus. We are going for a second opinion and I want to be able to know more about this tear, surgery, recovery time etc....
Can anyone help me? If her pain in only coming from the stress fracture and not the tear, is it imperative that we have the surgery done? If the surgery is done, is it possible that it doesn't work?
Any help you can give me would be appreciated.
