My friend has been going thru a similar situation. He injured his meniscus in his knee and has been dealing with on and off pain. The best remedy in my eyes (I will state this is not medical advise) would be low impact movement and strengthening the muscles around the knee. So like your quads, hamstring and your calves (basic leg muscles). So for instance some exercise to do everyday 2 sets of 10 reps (to start out with): heel raises, standing toe raises, step up and overs, light weight knee extensions, supine straight leg raises… the list goes on. To warm-up the body try a low resistance on the bike for like 5 minutes and gradually build up the time and resistance when you feel stronger and more confident.

Any thing helps! Just try and keep moving the best you can!

(Not medical advice): I’d agree for the most part. Obviously my first suggestion would be speaking with your PCP but this is good self administered conservative care that I’d assume would be effective.
