Hey Chris,

Fellow partial meniscectomy survivor here (medial bucket handle tear). Like Kaitlin said, you’ve given up the privilege of buffering bad positions to some degree, so make sure your movement skills are fine-tuned. Your knee probably won’t ever be the same again, but that doesn’t mean it will be horrible. It will just need a little extra attention and care.
Kelly put out a great post a while back for a user-request Friday about athletic life after a full meniscectomy. The individual is probably a more extreme case than yourself, so some of the more serious precautions might not apply, but the info might lend some good insight into how to cope athletically with that missing bit of knee stability:
Hope that helps!
