    Just had knee surgery...


    Lateral Meniscus tear, Dr said it was an arthroscopic menisectomy.

    He gave me cructhes and told me to ice at (I left the hospital at 4 pm) but i forgot to ice **** god damn it.

    Wish me luck guys.
    I've had a slew of leg problems, broke my leg when I was 4 in 3 different places and was in bed for 6 months, I have flat feet, and I've twisted both ankles. Also I think the lateral tear came from lunging or maybe squatting. However it IS a LATERAL tear so I think lunging may have done it, I had a particular time when I tried lunging with a 40lb dumbell and I pulled my knee sideways.

    I've had pain for over a year due to doctor mis diagnoses and just in general not letting me get an mri.

    i recommend physical therapy for diagnosis when one is experiencing pain/problems like this.. of course i am biased because im a student, but the tests performed can pretty much narrow it down to a specific cause.

    MRI, however, is the MOST reliable method of diagnosis for orthopedic problems. The surgery entails trimming the torn portion off , i believe. Im glad you got it taken care of bro, and from what i understand, recovery from meniscectomy is fairly quick and successful

    Good luck
    Suffer now.. and live like a champion later.
