Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.
Have you done an MRI of the affected area?
doctors told me it would not be useful to have MRI
So, did you any treatment after the injury?
So, did you get any treatment after the injury?
I saw a chiropractor and he used a machine (don't know the name in english sorry) to reduce the inflammation and improve blood circulation in the affected area
otherwise, I saw a physical therapist and he gave me some exercises to do, like leg extensions, little squats, etc
I didn't have any surgery since I've been told there was nothing to do with it
Alright. So, no surgery was necessary for the tear.
That's what I've been told, because it was not "that" serious
but today, one year later, I still feel it
it doesn't hurt, but I feel it, I feel a bit unconfortable
I would strongly advise you to get an MRI of the right knee joint to determine the extent of scar tissue formation. This is the only study which will confirm if you need any surgical approach to remove scar tissue or if other treatments might be helpful.
ok, and can you tell me if internal scar tissue removal is normally possible for that kind of injury (or anything else) ?
Yes, by arthroscopic technique (minimally invasive surgery with endoscope).
But this is advisable if you have joint movement problems.
Otherwise physical therapy would be good enough.
Shots of enzymes are sometimes given to dissolve scar tissue.
but I don't have any movement problems. I can do any movements.

The only thing is that I "feel it" and that I don't have full power of my right leg
That could be a lump due to hematoma.
removable with surgery too ?
But as I said that may not be necessary.
Medicines like fibrinolytics could be helpful, if it is an old blood clot.
So, you should see an orthopedic doctor asap.
Or, even a surgeon would be good.
ok, I will
a second and third opinion is always good
Yes, you need to do that at the earliest!
