I’ve been back home for over a week now and I’ve had my pre-opp consultation with a great sports and trauma orthopaedic surgeon in Brighton.
It turns out It was a good call flying home as all the pain and locking of my knee wasn’t for no reason. I’ve torn my lateral and inside meniscus to quite some extent…Normally in Athletes the cartilage will be completely removed, which is great for short term as I’ll be back on the water within weeks but it poses alot of future threats and issues, specially at my age and within the sport I’m doing.
My Surgeon is going to make an attempt to repair the damage I’ve done on the 5th February. If this is successful I’ll have a long 6 months of Rehabilitation. If not then I’ll more than likely be back on the water quicker, but i’ll deal with that if it comes along.
