Meniscus Tear?
« on: January 23, 2019, 09:17:36 PM »
Slipped on icy back steps a couple weeks ago, nasty hip bruise and bad knee pain. Could hardly walk back up the 4 steps. Ibuprofin, limping for 2 weeks, no leg work, wearing my squat sleeve for everything but bed & shower.  Yesterday I get to my Orthapedic Dr. who bends & twists it this way and that after the XRay, she ordered an MRI for Monday then follow up with surgeon for possible surgery.

Thing is, I'm not sure if it's some mental result of her twisting and cranking on my knee without pain that I've stopped limping, but it's like at 95% of what it was before the fall.

The way I see it I have 3 options:

1. go through the MRI and possibly waste a bunch of my insurance company's $ and an a busy surgeon's time for nothing, or find out there's a tear that requires PT and rehab.
2. Put everything off for a week and decide at that point
3. Get back in the squat rack you Pussy

hmmm :S

Option 1

I'd rather know for sure that everything is ok before pushing a slight tear into a complete tear that.

It's like 99% better. Calling the Dr. 1st thing in the Morning to see if he wants me to proceed with the MRI.

Probably just the HIV again, short course of antibiotics should take care of it.

I see the Doc Monday. Hoping the cure is squats because it's been almost 3 weeks without a BB on my back.

Pretty sure all limb fractures are cured by squatting.

Wait, is it all or none?  I get confused.
