Hi folks- about 12 years ago I had surgery on my lateral meniscus and rushed back to the court 4 weeks post surgery. As I’ve gotten older, the knee flares us from time to time and this is one of those moments :-/
I’ve gone through the knee videos and haven’t been able to find anything that addresses this specifically. I’m hoping that I don’t have another lateral tear, but I have the same achy, dull pain that I remember from that time then.
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions on how to address? I’m nearly to the point of just getting in to see the ortho, but would like like avoid any surgery unless absolutely needed. I have 4 young kids, and a 6-8 week recovery time just doesn’t fit into life right now 🙂
What are you experiencing?
Restrictions in range of motion?
Certain movements bother it?
Did you injure it?
What has helped you in the past?
What have you done that hasn’t helped?
Are you working up/downstream of the knee?
