It has been 3 months since the MRI on my right knee.
For those who don’t know the results. You can read about them here.
Basically Torn Meniscus.
I have been getting treatment for it. Including Chiro/Physiotherapy and stretching it and trying to rehabilitate it.
However, there is not much progress.
I cannot stand long or walk long, or even (yes I know I should not) skate long.
My limits for;
- Walking regularly =45 mins.
- Walking with incline/decline= 15 mins.
- Running= not tested.
- Standing/not moving= 1 hour maximum (at work)–> Which I have been off for a while.
- Standing/moving= Depends but breaks are needed.
- Skating 20 mins-30 mins with small breaks in between.
I have crutches with me 90% of the time. Mostly for security reasons in case I cannot continue walking.
If I feel I need them I bring them. I try to avoid using them, which the last few days have not happened.
The recovery is going slower then expected.
I have a temporary brace right now that holds my leg together.
I had the measurements for my knee done and I will be getting a new brace in the next few weeks.
I am continuing physio/chiro/icing/heating/electrotherapy/stretching etc.
I will also be referred to a surgeon to see if my knee will need to be scoped. I have no information about that, but I am sure it will be happening within the New Year.
Time will tell.
