Diagnosed with tear in posterior horn of medial meniscus extending into inferior articular surface, plus some arthritis. Ice, heat, NSAIDs, hydrocodone don't help
. Cortisone shot helped a little. Pain puts me in wheelchair if I walk much, and walking was my life until 12/08. Had recurrent C. difficile colitis for 8 months in 2005 - 06, so am at risk of another recurrence if I need antibiotics. Are there other treatments besides surgery?
