my wife has had swelling and sometimes sharp pain in her knee for the last few weeks. Her doctor thought it was a Baker's cyst, but had her get an mri before seeing an orthopedic surgeon. The mri results came back as a torn medial meniscus (sp?) and effluent, which i understand is water on the knee. We've done research, but I'd like to hear from people who have suffered from this. She's 45 and though a bit overweight, she's fairly active and in good health. Sounds to me like the answer is surgery. What can she expect? Thanks for any and all replies.
