Hi and thanks for the query,

It is important for you to follow strict medical advise. The lesions if well managed, knee well stabilized, and the outcome within the next 6 weeks would for sure be positive. The key aspects in knee trauma and surgery are compliance to medical care and immobilization of the knee. Special physiotherapy might be recommended under certain circumstances. Kind regards.
