Before two days I passed through partial knee menisectomy. I torned meniscus in my left knee before 2 years, I decided to fix it now because it started to getting worse.
6 hours after operation I was able to walk without braces or cructhes, and it gets only better now. I do exercises I received from physical therapist every two hours, followed by 15-20 minutes of ice packs on the knee.
I doesn’t feel any pain or sweeling or popping in the knee and as I know I rehab fantastic for now. Also didn’t take any pain killers after opearation.
I expect to walk normally in few days and about sport activity I will listen my knee but if rehab continue like this I hope to be on track in a month (but for high impact activities like sprints, deep squars, and deadlifts I will wait longer probably).
Still don’t know how muchpart of meniscus is taken out, doc sad it was just a litlle tear on lateral meniscus. I want to say that I really strengthen up my leg muscles before operation because I heard it’s the most important factor for fast rehab after operation. I almost doubled my deadlift, quadriceps extensions, and harmstrings curls.
What’s your experience over this operation, how fast did you rehab and got back on lifting weights and other high impact activities?
