I missed all last season after having key hole surgery to remove some cartilage.My knee had swelled up to maybe 5x its normal size,after 6 weeks of seeing the GP and getting nowhere I insisted on seeing a specialist(it probably helps that my girlfriend works on the local orthapedic ward)anyway he recommended surgery and its now fine, infact I had the op early march and was back on the turbo by the end of march.
Could probably have raced but the doc recommended not to cos of the extra abuse racing brings,still it got me back into mtb's again and my knee can even take riding a singlespeed
Thanks for that mate. I talked to my coach again today and Im gonna get a scan done to see what the damage is. It's reassuring to hear your op went smoothly. I'd hate to miss this year after missing last year to a virus!
Did you have the op done privatly or on the NHS?
