I have been a runner for 18 years, but developed a problem last Autumn. After going for runs sometimes for only 5k, I found that there was pain around my hamstring & knee. The pain got woarse for about 48 hours then eased off. I would delay running for a week or two, & then try again, but each time the pain & problem came back. I have had an MRI scan of my knee & it was diagnosed as having a complex significant tear to the medial meniscus. I am not really an ambitious runner, but do miss not being able to run at least 4 times a week. I have ran 10 marathons, but would like to continue running regularly. I am not sure what surgery can be done to correct tears to the medial meniscus, & whether they are risky or easy to do.
