I tore my meniscus sparring MMA, I shot a double leg and the knee locked up on me, lateral and according to the dr it was a big tear, tear was may 7th, had meniscus repair, not removal, 8 days later on may 15th. Has any one had this surgery? If so what was your recovery like? How long till you could walk on it, running, doing running jacks, ect?
I’m looking to join the Army, and was wondering if I would be about to do boot camp style PT in two months. I don’t have to be the best, just good enough to dog it for a few weeks until I’m stronger. [/quote]
It takes about 10 weeks for the repair to fully heal.
That doesn’t mean you are fully ready for activity though.
Other things are going to play an important role like how well you adhere to your rehab, how good of a rehab program you have, the strength of your muscles, etc.
Don’t push this. Be grateful you qualified for a repair and not an excise. You don’t want to be under the knife again. [/quote]
Where did you read this?
I been googling when the repair heals, and all I can ever find is stuff on rehab not the actual healing of the tear where he stitched it back together.
