Knee Surgery

I'm having arthroscopic Surgery on my knee for a torn meniscus Monday morning? I think I tore it chasing deer around in the fall. Any of you ever had this procedure? If so, How was it?, Recovery time? and did it fix the problem?

Re: Knee Surgery

just do the therapy, and listen to the doc. I had mine done but rushed it and tore it again.

Re: Knee Surgery

I'm going to give you the opposite opinion. I had the same surgery last year on both knees; one in January and the other in March. The pain never really let up, and I suffered all thru this past hunting season. In my case, I really needed replacements, but the doc didn't want to do them cause I was too young (I'm 51). My knees were deteriorating so badly on the insides that I was starting to become bow-legged. I talked to another doc, and he compared the surgeries I had to putting band-aids on gunshot wounds. I bit the bullet and had partial replacements in both knees two weeks ago. I'm still in a lot of discomfort, but doing therapy every day. Do you know anything about Bakers cysts?

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

Sounds like your knees where in bad shape. I've never had any problems with my knees other than this tear. Doc says I should be fine, but maybe develop a little arthritis were he cut out the tear. Hope your replacements work out for ya.

Re: Knee Surgery

Yeah, I've had knee troubles for a long time. Hopefully your surgery will do exactly what it's supposed to. Good luck to you.

Re: Knee Surgery

Is your knee locking up?

Re: Knee Surgery

No, not locking up. Just really tight left of center with sharp pain from time to time. I would have good days with no pain, but could always feel that something was wrong. Pain finally got unbearable about 3 weeks ago, so I found me a surgeon.

Re: Knee Surgery

My brother tore one of his last spring chasing a gobbler he just shot down over a mountain. My dad tore both of his as well at work. They both had surgeries and are much better afterwards. They never had a lot of pain after the surgery and were back to normal in about a month. Do your therapy and you'll be better off. My dad slacked on his therapy after his second surgery and it shows.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.
