I am a 36-year old female who previously ran about 30km per week. I have recently had an MRI scan on my right knee. It was suspected that I had torn a previously-reconstructed ACL (operation was 18 years ago). However, this was intact and the MRI showed focal cartilage erosion along the weight bearing surface of the medial femoral condyle with underlying marrow oedema.
My consultant prescribed a course of Calcium and Vitamin D supplements in addition to some medication intended for Osteoporosis. He said that I should not run for 6 months but that I can do cycling, swimming, cross-trainer, rowing.
I am seeking your views on this advice. I would not want to continue doing too much exercise (as I try to do something 5 days a week) if I shouldn't. At the same time, I am keen to keep my cardio activity going as much as possible.
