    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?

    That's a pain in the bahooki, or more accurately knee. All the best for a full recovery!
  4. Ouch. Remember this though:

    Going in the right direction...

    My sympathies. Mine ended in June when my shoulder went south. Having a fibre optic camera inserted surgically into it on Friday. Deep joy.

    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

    @fuzzybuddha the diagnosis is not a language I understand and I think you and I are in different leagues when it comes to cycling but it sounds painful and I wish you well in your recovery.

    4 months of the year left. Plenty of time. I was back cycling gently within 4 months of breaking my spine, and almost two months were bed rest.
