Thanks for posting your query.
I have gone through your query in detail. The answers to your queries are as follows -
1.Your menisci injury is four years old and in this condition partial menisectomy is the only surgical treatment
2.Yes, without repair of menisci injury, there are chances that you can get the arthritis
early. You should be able to do much better by treating this injury.The meniscus
acts as a shock absorber, removing part of it would lead to more stress on the articular cartilage
and bones. While there is no way to predict if you will develop later arthritis or how quickly.
3.Pain in the Achilles and heel region is a common clinical presentation particularly in individuals involved in repetitive weight bearing activity such as excessive walking, jumping or running sports.
4.Treatment options for medial hamstring
snapping are as follows:-
Unfortunately, this is such a rare condition that a definitive treatment course has not been determined. In some patients, it has been found that simply releasing the gracilis and semitendinosus tendons at their attachment along the pes anserine bursa, followed by scar tissue release of the tendons proximally, is very successful at relieving the snapping symptoms. In others, a surgical excision of the snapping hamstring tendon(s) with an open hamstring harvester has also been performed.
One can leave it alone if there is no pain, redness
, inflammation associated with it.So surgical treatment is considered only if the associated symptoms occur.
So I suggest consult this with your orthopaedic surgeon
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health...
