I had a small meniscal tear removed and my patellar was debrided. I was told I would be walking normally after 2 weeks and jogging after 5-6 weeks. One year later and I can't walk further than 200 metres, can't do stairs, have to use disabled toilets, etc, etc. I have post menisectomy syndrome. Unfortunately my good knee is now so painful and noisy due to all the stress its been under for the last year, that I have an appointment with a surgeon tomorrow. I am 47 years old and before surgery was extremely fit swimming a mile a day, walking 2 big dogs twice daily and spinning at the gym 3 times a week. I have been left disabled after a routine arthroscopy. I have been told that if I cycle loads and do hydrotherapy exercises daily, plus visit my physio weekly that within 3 years after the surgery my bad leg should improve. Goodness knows where this nightmare will end now my good knee is suffering. I can't swim now as the good leg hurts when I try. Has anyone suffered like this and finally improved?
