So I am thirteen days out from my second meniscus repair. This time is was my left knee. I am happy to report that my recovery has been significantly faster this time around (my right knee meniscus surgery was a in early September).
I was able to start leg workouts with my stitches still in and cut my grass, trim and edge. I asked my doctor why my the recovery was so much faster this time around. The answer I got was simply that it’s kind of impossible to know. I’m not one to look a gift horse in the mouth but it is curious. My left leg has always been stronger, perhaps that has something to do with it.
I can say that my workouts were as consistent as possible and I’m sure the pre-op and post-op workouts helped. I hope to be back to my martial arts school by mid November.
The only advice I can impart that may potentially help is – Go to a good Orthopedist and get a handle on the situation. Keep up your workouts as best you can (pain permitting), you will be stronger pre-op and recover faster post-op.
Hope this helps!!
Train Hard, Train Safe!!
