I underwent a partial removal of my miniscus on 8/25/10. I can now do everything, including walking at 4 miles per hour, without any knee pain.
It is very important to attend all the therapy sessions prescribed by the doctor – I went to AthletiCo – and work hard at it. Also, use the weights and other tools (at home or in a club) and follow the therapy instructions given by the doctor. In my case, I also continued with my regular workout schedule at my health club, initially at a somewhat reduced level. I am back to normal now.
It has always been important to me to be LiveActive. I was 43 when I had a heart attack, from which I recovered completely. At age 65, I finally needed a bypass. I will soon be 70 and want to keep “moving young”!
