I run for fitness and play football, probably three times a week (7s, training and a game of 11s).
Fell and twisted my right knee at the end of the first game of the season (august). I took a few days off and as the pain wasn't too bad I continued to play. I then had a scan in december, got lost in the NHS system and after a few call emails I saw the consultant who looked at my December scan and said that he saw tears in both the medial and lateral menisci (sp)?
a couple of weeks before seeing the consultant I ended up in a and e after [laying &s, stretching for a ball and my knee hurt like and nearly two months later still does.
I'm booked in for surgery on the 23rd July (after a few more admin errors) and have been told by the consultant that I will be in a brace for 6 weeks followed by more rehab for 6 weeks. Looking at other meniscus injuries on here this rehab sounds more lengthy.
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this kind of rehab and any advice. Of. Being able to exercise is starting to get really frustrating!
