Any folks with a partial meniscectomy?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Had mine done a month or so ago and rehab is going fine, no pain or any significant discomfort. I had a question, though, as to the long term wellness of the knee. Mine was a lateral partial, with approx 40% removed.

Any folks out there care to share their story and how (if at all) it's affecting athletics or skiing? Thanks.

Under no circumstances should you pressue the knee and rotate the lower leg. I hurt imine BADLY just playing golf. Ruined it in fact. It swells up a lot.

Ice helps.

You've lost some of the "o-ring" in there, so some of the natural cushioning effect is lost. Make sure you keep the muscles around the knee strong. I've lived with it for 25 years, mostly feels fine, once in a while I get a twinge if I rotate while weight bearing over the joint.
