In brief the problem i have, *3 op's on my left knee over the last 2 years to repair and remove medial meniscus.
Recently i've been getting more and more pissed off with the whole business. My knee really should have been fixed first time round and i definatley should have been surfing again about 10 months ago. After the thrid op is was told that they had removed the out meniscus and that i should have no problems. This was last October (03)!! I did feel that during the summer i had improved but since i have had a constant aching pain mixed with sharp pains when awquardly move(by accident). I saw a consaltant 6 weeks ago who told me that i would have an MRI scan done within 3-4 months. I have now been told that it will be more like 12 months and my physio will not see me until i've had it done. I'm taking a whole load of pain killers which i don't like.
I have now got myself onto a cancelation list and am my GP is talking to the consultant again to try and speed things up. In the mean time i am swimming/static cycling and just doing leg raises(when the knee is not hurting)
Anyway just rambling on here the advise/help i would like is 1; what do you think could be wrong with my knee so that i have soom amo to go back with.
2; What exercises are best and is it good for the knee is it is hurting.
PS; I know that things could be allot worse i just want to go surfing !
