ATHROSCOPY AND RETURNING TO RUNNING

Posted: Today at 06:45

Hi StuT frustrating isn't it !! Hope the scan sheds some light on the problem and you are set on the road to recovery soon.  

Day 16  here. Went up and down four flights of stairs at work yesterday without much bother which is the first time sinice last October.  I  got carried away and went for a second lap  but the knee told me that it'd had enough for one day.     Have done two very short (5min) Static bike sessions but dudnt feel confident in pressing on further as it felt a bit twingy and unstable. MM

Hi Peter. My meniscus was ok but I have quite bad cartilage damage from a wonky knee cap movement  (not exactly the consultants words but hear enough ).   I'm preying I will be able to run again. Early days yet for me - goid luck with your knee issue. MM x

I'll continue to post updates in case someone else is looking for a comparison in the future.   Day 11. Moderate swelling and occasional twinges if I forget and twist the knee. Normal walking is fine but I've not been too far  to test it.  I'm icing regularly to keep the swelling under control and I'm doing the Physio exercises.   The flexibility is pretty good Considering the joint is swollen.

Day 3 post surgery. leg is a bit sore and stiff but I'm working on the exercises to improve flexibility and icing whenever I can. In all I freel pretty good, considering how early it is.

Stu/ Peter sorry to jump in but im on the same path so I thought you might be interested. I saw my doctor in march And got a consultant appointment in April. Was sent for xrays then an MRI which showed some mild cartridge damage and a misaligned patella. He tried a cortisone injection and referred me for Physio to try to rebuild my wasted muscles but the knee was too swollen to work with.  Went back to the consult and he confirmed surgery was my only option (Lateral release) He took a fair amount if fluid off to keep me mobile while I wait for a date -  nothing through yet but hopefully will be 'done' in September.    It feels like a lifetime that I've not been able to run or cycle.  Please keep posting as I would like to hear  how you both get on. Thanks 

Arthroscopic Lateral Release of the Knee

My history for ref. knee was a but puffy during marathon training last autumn but not enough to cause any worries . Ran marathon in Jan without concern. Rested. Began training for a half in feb and it flared up Swollen sore and hot  Had X-ray and MRI which shows I have an odd shaped knee cap Which is not tracking properly. had an injection of  cortisone which gave temporary relief and prescribed Physio. physio had to discharge me after four weeks as it was too swollen to work with.  So here I am waiting for an op which is hopefully happening in late August.   I've tried all sorts to get some exercise but it just bites me on the bum the next day.      

Marian I really hope it works out for you as I know how frustrating it is to feelyour fitness   draining away. Take care x
