    Partial Meniscus Removal Surgery

    Hey guys and gals,

    So I partially tore my medial meniscus of the rt. knee. At first I was limping with moderate pain and then it started to decrease and get better after about 2 weeks. Then I ended up reinsuring it and started limping again with pain. Saw an orthopedic surgeon and got an MRI. Diagnosis: oblique tear of the medial meniscus with Baker's cyst. Surgery scheduled for next Friday. It entails removing part of the meniscus that is torn/or being pinched by the femur and tibia.

    Not looking forward to this b/c of the interruption in training as well as my small business that Im starting in April which involves heavy labor. If anyone has had the surgery or has a similar story post up. Thanks!

    Sorry to hear about your injury. Interruptions in training drive me nuts. Hope all goes well and wishing you a speedy recovery.

    I had meniscus surgery when i was younger, the surgery lasted about 30 minutes and i was putting some weight on it within a couple of days, you should recover pretty quickly

    That's not too bad, you'll be back to full force before you know it, dude.
