Essentially, you have two injuries to your knee
. The first is a torn
medial meniscus, or a torn
cartilage. The rest is a description of the shape of the tear. A bucket handle flops back and forth inside the knee, like the handle on a bucket, and can cause pain, locking, and swelling. This treated arthroscopically and will require either repair or removal of the damaged piece of meniscus.
The second injury is a torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament, (ACL).
