Aug 28-injured left knee...self medication (hiccup!) wore off by the morning, and wow did that hurt!
Aug 29-got a script for Arthrotec 75, lots of pain
Aug 30-Family physician made the referral to the orthopedic surgeon
-said its unlikely the damage is minor "with that much swelling"
Aug 31-pain getting manageable, moving around on crutches
-Ortho said stability wasn't too bad; put in for MRI (usually in the 2-4 months range)
Sept 2-got call from Imaging dept at 12:20 "Can you be here by 2:00?" Awesome!
-MRI was done two days after request; co-worker (who's had both knees done) suggested I buy a lottery ticket, as I was damn lucky!
Sept 8-Ortho gives me the news I have a bucket handle tear of the medial meniscus; needs to be scoped
-he indicated I could be back on skis by the end of January
I know there'll be some rehab after getting scoped.
My question is, what can I do now, before the surgery?
I've tried light workouts the past couple days, but I think its making it worse.
