scheduled for tommorow,torn medial meniscus,slight acl tear.Does anyone have experience with this injury.Or rather what kind of recovery time can I expect after the operation.I haven't bent my knee in a month.I'm actually looking forward to rehab work-outs at this point.I realize it's not really a running injury[I was wrestling with my son]but I want to return to running asap.

I tore mine in 2004. Had surgery on October 10 and was back jogging on October 31.

As long as they don't find anything funny once they're in there, they snip the torn part out and the knee is fixed. It's the holes from the scope that have to heal more than the knee itself.

I ran the Turkey Trot (Troy) that year, so the recovery went pretty well.

Thanks,that's encouraging to hear.They did find the acl was actually torn completley but we think that was a older injury,so I'm pretty sure I've been running on that all along with no issues.My first goal is to ride my bike.So far,with my feet on the pedals,I can only get the crank arms a little past parallel to the ground.

Well I rode my bike.It wasn't pretty or with any cadence worth mentioning but the knee felt great afterwards.I think this is a milestone in my recovery.Now it's time to load up on the miles,little by little.
