i had an arthoscopy to my right knee to flush out the knee and repair the found torn cartlidge, which on reflection was the result of falling upstairs twisting my knee quite severley some 18 months earlier. i followed excercises as instructed by the hospital which seemed to help over the next two weeks after my op. it has been 2 months now and i seem to have good days and bad days according to if i take strong pain relief when i know i am going to be on my feet for a long time or not. the site of the repair swlls when i,m on my feet for a long time and the repair becomes very hard and lumpy sometimes quite painful. i have decided to return to work as i have been off for 2 months now and am thinking it is going to be a long time before i feel any great improvement (if i do?) and my job as a senior carer with the elderly is important to me. i will just have to take things as my knee dictates at any time. Is there an average recovery time for this op as all my family and work colleagues keep telling me not to return to work until i feel fit :?
