21 yr old Male Stage one OCD...silent killer?
« on: November 16, 2008, 08:36:01 PM »
Hey mates I am new here.  I am a 21 year old, highly active male who was recently diagnosed with stage one osteochondritis dissecans in my right knee two months ago.  Sorry to say I was unaware to ask at the time if it was medial or lateral, and I don't know the size of it either.  In terms of activities bike riding and weight lifting help my knee to feel better and eliminate some of the swelling.  However running or pivoting and high impact activites are bad.  I have no pain just some swelling instablity/weakness.
Has anyone been in a similar situation?  This was caught early but what am I looking at in terms of a recovery, surgery, rest?  From what I have read OCD seems like a silent killer one day you notice it, the next you are planing out 12-24months of inactivity. 
Am I being pessimistic?
Panic is never good but should i be concerned?

Cheers,
Doug :)
