Good Morning: (I think I double posted)
My name is David, i'm 31, and I had a microfracture procedure done on my left knee almost 4 weeks ago.
I used to play american football until age 26, but know I only play flag football. I also play basketball, but more flag than basketball.
I started having problems on my knee the next day after a game on october. It just swelled up. I could control it with ice, so I just kept on playing till the end of the season. The only real bother was the swelling. I could run, jump, cut, spin do all these things without pain.
In december, when the season was over, I noticed I had lost A LOT of muscle in my injured leg (dont know how actually) The thing is when I started lifting weight it really hurt (although I could still do 30 + minutes in bike and eliptic machine without pain). Kept on doing my everyday things (a had NO PAIN, thats why i waited so long to get the surgery) I had my surgery on april to "clean out the knee" and woke up with microfracture.
From what i've been told, They had to drill 2 holes in the injured part of my bone, I think it is just below of the kneecap. 0 pain from the day of the surgery, i've been able to sit down wit almost no weight on my leg, lost of ice and therapy (3 times a day) and I am using 4lb weights.
Any comments would be welcomed!!
