Re: worn meniscus
Thanks for the reply.
My knee pain actually came on suddenly. I use to run a lot, but had to stop due to the compartment syndrome. When I ran, my knees would hurt in the begining, the pain would go away while running, and then it would return a few hours after running. When I stopped running, I started to use a stationary bike more, and would experience some pain. Eventually, it got to the point where my knees hurt while going up and down stairs, and they hurt to leave bent in certain positions. Currently, I can't do lunges or squats in the gym and I really don't like stairs. There are good days and bad days when it comes to pain.
Right now, since I am not active, I don't have to much pain. However there are tender spots on the lateral side of the right knee and the medial side of both knees. I just worry about returning to activity. Eventually, I need to be able to run in order to play lacrosse.
Currently, my doctor is more worried about my recovery. He doesn't think it's a big problem right now, but once I am active, I'm only going to be able to deal with so much pain.
