So just got some very not great news... I have partially discoid medial meniscus with a displaced flap tear. Hooray... Going to be scheduling the surgery tomorrow. After a good season where i doubled my output from the previous year, i dont think i will be able to do more this year...:sad:

Just wanted to vent a little, nothing to see....

Shame, do you know how long recovery will be?

How so assuming a) the op is soon b) it's keyhole c) the meniscus is being trimmed (much more likely if you're over about 30 and the meniscus is discoid) and not sewn back together (so you'll be weight bearing straight away)

I had medial partially menisectomy, microfracture and a tidy up of the kneecap on 10 Jan...I was back cycling mid Feb with the physio's blessing. Work hard at your boring post op rehab exercises, and you'll be back on a bike again before Christmas :okay:
If you do cycle, stick an ice pack on it after riding to keep any inflammation at bay

Follow the docs instructions. Might be time for a turbo trainer - hateful things they are but great whilst injured, or time crunched.

I used an exercise bike in gym everyday once enough ROM obtained (physio had me on one about a week post op). Didn't bother with turbo
