Medial meniscus torn. Have an MRI. Done therapy. What will help further?

i tore my meniscus when i was in the eighth grade going into my freshman year. I tore my medial meniscus and had surgery on it. I am now fully released and my knees were feeling better, I am a competitive cheerleader and after a state competition my sophomore year my knees hurt, both of them. I went to the doctor had an MRI and they said it was runners knee. I went to therapy for four months and things got better. My right knee is pretty great but my left knee KILLS ME! I cannot straighten it all the way, squatting lunging and running hurts. I get the occasional sharp pain while running. The pain is off and on and sometimes there is no pain for like a week and then pain is continuous for 3 to 4 days so it makes me unsure of the severity or the cause of my pain! help?

Hi, thank you for your question.

The symptoms you describing in the left knee now sounds like another meniscus tear, you may need repeat MRI to the left knee to see if there is meniscus tear which has been missed on previous scan.

kind regards
