The MRI showed a degenerative tear; my ortho says that he can clean up the damage. The scope is scheduled for December 9; when I asked him if there is anything I should not do until then, he says to not do stuff that makes it hurt. It hurts ALL the time! What am I supposed to do - nothing for the next few weeks? I don't want to make the problem worse, but sitting around more will just make me crazy! Is that what I have to do?
Or - can I do what I want as long as I use ice and the anti - inflamatory drug (Voltaren, I think) afterwards?
It's snowing in the mountains - I want to be snowshoeing this winter - will I make it? How about cross country skiing?
Also - what is recovery like? A full leg brace, or just crutches?
