Most of the patients do not require a knee brace after a meniscectomy, but if the patient undergoes a meniscus repair done, a knee brace or a knee immobilizer is provided to prevent the bending of the knee while bearing weight which can cause retearing of the repair of the meniscus.
And, how long should I wear a knee brace after meniscus surgery?
You must be non-‐weight bearing with brace and crutches until cleared by your surgeon. When you are using crutches your brace must be locked in extension. You must wear the hinged-‐knee brace for the first 6 weeks. This brace protects the meniscus repair because it prevents you from bending the knee past 90 degrees.
At the very least, should my knee still hurts after meniscus surgery? Many people experience knee pain, popping or cracking, or swelling following their meniscus surgery. While these symptoms can be uncomfortable and irritating, usually they resolve with time as the knee continues to heal.
Additional, how do I strengthen my knee after meniscus surgery?
Why is my knee so tight after meniscus surgery?
Arthrofibrosis, also known as “stiff knee syndrome,” occurs when excessive scar tissue forms around a joint, limiting range of motion and causing pain and disability. It can be a complication of knee replacement or anterior cruciate ligament surgery, with infections and bleeding as known contributing factors.

Other reasons for knee pain after meniscus surgery is the fact that there is a retained piece or maybe the tear was fixed and the sutures have not held and the repair failed. So, there are many reasons why you may still have pain following surgery for a meniscus tear. Some of it may be simple to explain.
What Happens to the Knee After Meniscus Surgery? Another reason for knee pain 1 year after meniscus surgery is new-onset arthritis. As per the research, the knee is more susceptible to arthritis after meniscus surgery (7). The researchers looked at structural changes on knee MRIs over an 18-month period after surgery.
Without an adequate blood supply, the area of torn meniscus will have to be removed. After mensical surgery, rehabilitation with a physical therapist or athletic trainer is needed to restore range of motion, strength, movement control and guide the athlete's return to sport.
