I think you'd follow the othopedic suggest.
During a football match I broke my left knee ACL and i had a meniscus problem: at the beginning i tried to avoid surgery but it was each day worst, painful and limited my life.
I got a surgery and now i'm again on the pitch and i'm having normal life.
If you don't pay attention and you don't get a surgery your meniscus will be worst until will block your knee.
Trust in your orthopedic and get the surgery: you will thank him.
Thanks for advice..I will take it into consideration
