Just to give a brief background, I had surgury in Feb. of this year, partial lateral meniscectomy, and it went fine. I sped through physical therapy, pretty quickly.
Now I’m comming up on 8 months post surgury and I still have a lot of pain when I run and lift. I’ve heard of people, through my doc. and others, who have had the same surgury and are out and running in a month or two time. I was supposed to go to USMC basic training in August but now I can’t ship until my knee is resolved and I’m running again.
I went back to see my doc recently and he said that everything seems fine, the pain should go away. Since then the swelling has gone down and when I bend my knee I can see there is a little bit of swelling still there.
Also, when I have run on it, I start experiancing hip pain. What’s the liklihood that it’s related.
Focus: Has anybody else had this surgury, or similar (medial meniscectomy), and how long did your recovery take? Should I just wait it out longer or go back and press my doc. for another MRI to see if there is any scar tissue or another issue?
