some months back i posted here again about a problem i faced with my left knee.
The old thread is here.
I went through an MRI scan, the results came out with minor injury of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus, minimal fluid in the internal joint.
Doc said i should rest it for a couple of months, so i did... Took 2 and a half months off of anything that could harm the left knee. I didn't cycle, didn't use the stairs, i even had the luxury not to walk so i used it.
After this time i gradually started cycling again, had some weird pain feeling which i hadn't felt before, it was like a numbness which continues up to now when i put the knee under the slightest pressure. I kept cycling for some weeks, covering more and more distance every night (my muscles were weakened a lot, so i couldn't cope with the old training habits), then some day i had a sharp pain after 30-35kms of riding. Yet again, gave up cycling for 3 more months.
I came back in action one month ago, i used the bicycle to cycle ~4km to and back from the local football field and run for for 10' adding 4-5 mins every second day. The second week, when i reached 35 mins and stopped i felt sharp pain in my knee so i gave up this time as well... took 4-5 days to get back to normal.
At first i thought that there could be a chance it was nerve pain but after the last run, every time i bend and straight the leg again i hear and feel a damn click in there at the last 10-15º of the movement...
So that's my story up until now, i've reached my limit on waiting/resting and i have to take measures to get back to cycling eventually...
Does anyone has/had similar experiences? Any advice?
Thanks in advance
