    Hi.  I recently had an MRI performed on my right knee which found a medial meniscus tear as well...

    as bone marrow edema in both my tibia and fibula (medial aspects.)  I had surgery one week ago today for the tear and it is doing pretty good.  However, I have pain in the anteromedial aspect of my tibia during weight bearing with my knee slightly flexed (I don't have full extension due to edema).  I think that this pain is due to the bone contusion.  Should I be limited weight bearing?  I called my ortho surgeon to ask, but unfortunately he had a stroke the day after my surgery and I cannot get answers otherwise.  I don't want to do further damage to my tibia.  Thanks.

    If your doctor had a stroke, he should have a doctor who is covering for him in his absence.  Call the office back and make it clear you need help from a doctor.  Another option would be to ask if he has a NP on staff that you can talk to.
