Ok what is that you tore?

The meniscus is the cartilage of the knee joint.

It’s actually the most common knee injury. I have a torn one right now and I didn’t do anything major either. It totally sucks but they are super common injuries. I’d do some research and go to an orthopedic doc cause they frequently don’t heal by themselves and need minor surgery, sometimes major depending on age and circumstance. But it is really hard for them to heal by themselves, so I’d check it

It is now week 3. It still hurts but not NEARLY as bad. I have a feeling that it had torn before but just never showed on an xray. I hope to not have surgery but I guess we will find out.
