Had an Arthrospoy about 10 years ago and had a bit of torn meniscus removed. I'm wondering if I've torn it again. If so, and I need another similar op, does the previous op have any significance to haveing another one?

I had an arthroscopy last year too.. Very scared about getting another injury.

You should get yourself to the docs and ask to see a specialist about it.

I will. How long were the different stages of rehab afterwards? I've forgotten

Hi, I've just had my second bout of arthroscopy on the same troublesome knee, first was in 2005. I'm now ready to run on a treadmill after 6 weeks of physio exercises, I felt ready to go a couple of weeks ago but psychologically struggled to get out there!

As Cookay says, get to the doctor, ask for an MRI straight away rather than potentially wasting time with a period of physio that may result in a referral for an MRI anyway.
