It’s now 2+ weeks following my meniscal repair surgery and time for an update.
Things have gone really well so far. After an initial period of partial weight bearing with crutches I’m now able to fully load my leg but not while bending it more than 90 degrees. I’ve had minimal pain or swelling to speak of for the last week and have managed to walk the dog a few times for up to an hour.
Rehab wise it’s been going well. Today’s rehab included 25 minutes on the cross trainer (my first cardio for weeks and much needed) followed by 3 circuits of
- Weighted step ups x15
- Bridges on a box (protecting 90 deg knee bend) x20
- TRX assisted squats x15
- Split squats x 15 each leg
- Mini squats x 20
- Footwork drill 20s each leg
- Single leg balance.
Pleased with how it’s progressing but need to be careful not to over do things.
