Torn Meniscus!

Dr. J just called after reading the radiolgist’s report from the MRI I had on Friday. The report says torn medial posterior meniscus! Dr. Jones has not read the scans himself yet — he’ll do that on Thursday when I see him. But I knew something was wrong, after the strong recovery that turned sour in mid to late October about 6 weeks after surgery!

Until he sees the scans he can’t say what we should do, but the options are to go in and trim out the tear (can’t really repair the meniscus) or just wait and see if the pain goes away. It seemed much better last week, as I actually mountain biked 5 times and had one 35 minute hike at a good pace. But that, of course, is no where near where I want to be.

Stay tuned!

  1. Glad you’re able to get back to some activity. That’s terrible though about the diagnosis. Do you think it happened during rehab? Do those heal on their own?
