Torn Meniscus

#2
I had a left lateral meniscus tear a few years back We first did a steroid shot to see if that would solve the problem. Felt good for couple days and then paid returned. I elected to go surgical route. I stayed awake during procedure. Recovery was quick and I was go in only couple weeks, and full go in 5-6 weeks. Glad I did it. No repercussions from surgery and I think it was in 2002. I was hunting mountain sheep in British Columbia when it happened, and I still can do those hunts.

Did you have to use crutches after? I hear a lot of folks can develop arthritis after knee surgery.

I tore mine a few months ago. Also caused a bakers cyst and my leg from knee down to swell. It really sucked for a few weeks but my doc told me to ride it out and didn’t even limit my activity’s. I still played ice hockey on the weekends and after a few weeks i started to feel much better. It’s almost back to 100% on its own and I really didn’t do anything for it at all.
