Recovering from arthroscopic hip surgery. Have swollen painful knee. MRI showing an old MCL sprain and fraying meniscus and inflammation behind knee cap. Any suggestions?

I have a knee that is swollen and aches. I have been doing rehab from arthoscopic hip surgery on a bike with no resistance. I have some swelling and tenderness on the inside of knee going doing towards the shin bone. I had MRI yesterday and it is showing an old MCL sprain and fraying meniscus and inflammation behind knee cap. Could my issue on inside of knee be the old MCL sprain.

Thanks for writing to us.
The swelling in the knee and pain that you are having is likely to be due to the old sprain of the ligament in the knee. If adequate rest to the joint is not provided then the swelling is sometimes persistent.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
