    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Torn meniscus & hip surgery
    gooterman posted:
    I am schedualed to have a total hip replacement in June. I just had an MRI that shows a torn meniscus in the knee of the same leg. Would this have any problems or complications for me in post operative exercises for my knee replacement.
    Bal M Rajagopalan, MD responded:

    Not many arthritic knees have degenerative tears. This is very common as long as you are not locking or giving away. Continue on and trust your surgeon.

    gooterman replied to Bal M Rajagopalan, MD's response:
    Great advice, I am in good hands with my surgeon. Thanks
