Meniscus Repair- Bruising Questions!
« on: April 27, 2018, 04:53:20 AM »
Hey guys,

I had my medial meniscus repaired just over a week ago and I feel that every time I do my exercises the bruising increases slightly. Anyone experience this?

Thanks,
Julia.

As with any post op regime, make sure you ice the knee for 10-15 minutes after every exercises session. Brushing will continue for a while, your knee has been majorly traumatised, despite what the little incisions might suggest

Good luck :)
