is it certain, or at least a possibility, that damage to the medial meniscus from an accident, will result in some level of permanent degeneration, even if there is little pain
months later after therapy and meds? In other words, is the knee
ever the same after an injury, especially for someone in their 50's?
In 2010, after an accident, an MRI showed mild degeneration (which I understand could mean a tear, even though the MRI report showed none). There was pain and limited movement.
