Post-knee arthroscopy info, including microfractureDecember 11, 2014
Following a knee arthroscopy, including microfracture, you need to remain non-weight bearing for six weeks and not put your foot to the ground at all during this time.
You also shouldn’t bend your knee all the way to a 90-degree angle as this will put too much of a strain on the deep structures in the knee which are trying to heal. You should keep your compression bandage on and intact for at least three to four days.
You will experience some pain following this operation and it’s important to keep this under control by icing and elevating your knee above heart level.
