i was diagnosed with radial meniscus tear. I saw two doctors, one said " need surgery", second said " you may need surgery but you have some knee cap wear, so you are riding dirt bikes." I told him during visit that I race bicycles.
any way, I don't have normal symptoms. My knee is not swollen, i have some clicking but walking doesn't bother me at all. Sitting down with bent knee creates some discomfort near knee cap.
I don't want to surgery if really not needed and don't want to have part of meniscus removed because doctor wants to make money.
I am looking for doctor in NJ who knows and understands needs of cyclists.
