Cycling and rehab after scope/chondroplasty
« on: March 25, 2005, 09:13:57 PM »

Its been five weeks since my arthroscopy and chondroplasty for a grade II/III articular cartilage injury and a partial meniscomy.  Is it safe to cycle at this stage.  Comments and expereinces appreciated.

I've had chondroplasty, menisectomy, and LR twice and got on a spinning bike within 7-10 days (one time as early as 3 days).  I found it very helpful with inflammation and getting my quad to start working again.  Your surgeon or PT didn't give you any advise on this?

Apr-03 - L Knee Mosaicplasty Using Allograft (18 grafts)/LR/debridement/menisectomy; Right Knee menisectomy.
Apr-04 - L Scope - LR/Lysis Adhesions

My OS made me buy one of those horrible bikes for after my microfractures. I hate that machine but he has me riding it regularly and fairly soon after surgery each time.. It is safe and non impact so my OS loves it.
