I have had a knee arthroscopy and had some medial meniscus removed and a general clean out of my right knee. That was 5 weeks ago (23rd July) and the knee is feeling much better. the only pain that I get is when I use my muscles to push the knee towards the floor when it is straight.
I have been working in the gym for about two/three weeks on general strengthening of my legs, lots of squats/leg extensions etc and it is feeling pretty stable.
I mainly play football and run but have decided to give football a miss for a few months till about December as we are having a baby beginning of Oct and also to get myself properly fit before playing again.
I am planning a 'test' run, probably a bit of walk/jog for a couple of miles on Sunday, my partner is not sure about this but I am desperate to get back doing something and the gym just isnt cutting it (plus I have a good few unwanted pounds to get rid of). I was wondering what people think would be a good way to get back into it? Im not sure how much I should do and how often, is it literally like starting from scratch? Dont want to overdo it and perhaps reinjure but then again, I do want to start as soon as I can!
Thanks in advance for all your help and advice, Im sure there will have been plenty of you in the same situation.
