After having meniscus surgery two weeks, I'm experiencing pain behind the knee (not under the cap). It feels swollen or like an "ace" is wrapped tight around this knee. Does anyone know what may be happening?
I don't have a clue, but if you're experiencing a new symptom by all means make your doctor aware of it. Meniscus surgery does take a considerable amount of time to recovery - 4 to 6 months from what I've read - so it's a long road, but new symptoms should be checked out. Good luck on your recovery!
