Torn Meniscus

It turns out it wasn’t something that rest and physical therapy could ultimately help.

I had torn the medial part of my left meniscus. The doctor said it wasn’t from a particular moment per-se, but rather just wear & tear given my activity level and age.

It is the most common form of knee injury for athletes.

So after three months of PT and two months of rest, an X-ray, and an MRI, the fix took less than two hours - and supposedly the entire procedure was only 20 minutes for the doctor.

My mobility steadily is increasing as the pain level is decreasing, and I’m excited to get the all clear.

Need to get at it!
