Default Yet Another Knee Injury thread

Had both knees Scoped already one was done 8 years ago, the other 30 years ago. Getting old really sucks
Knee has been bothering me a lot last 2 years and have tried other alternatives (PRP, Phys Therapy) but Knee just has a mind of it's own and decides to swell up intermittently always at wrong moment. When it does i can't get much more than a 90 degree bend. went back to my knee doc, and they found some more tearing .
Did not want to ruin whole summer so I postponed it till the end

Going in for Round 2 Tomorrow 2 tears in the rear meniscus.

Hopefully will be fully recovered by first Snow.
Just Bought a New Board As in incentive to motivate me to embrace the PT.

got the 2015 Marhar Throwback, which they customized the graphics for me. wanted bohemian graphics, but throwback tech

(yes I am that shallow, I am a sucker for a good design) .

For me the knees have been a lifelong issue. I was born with bad cartilage. Too thick on the outside, too thin on the inside. Tearing was inevitable, it was not if, it was when. I really wanted to get a knee replacement, but since i still have a lot of cartilage left, i was not in scope. Right now my knee feels great and I am constantly second guessing my decision. I was hoping to get a way with the steroid shots once a year, but they only seemed to last about 4 months, this lull is only temporary and in a moments notice it is acting up again.

Damn! that sucks ass! I wish you all the luck in the world on the surgery. My disk problem was my first serious injury and surgery, and it sucks! I have a greater appreciation and definitely feel for you folks who have been through worse!

Jealous of the board tho! Really wanted a Throwback myself! Sweet graphics, although I liked the original as well!

Snowboarding can be pretty rough for the knees/bones… SO had a tibia surgery, had a “normal” metal plate holding his tibia together fixed with “normal” screws. Went snowboarding with that “set-up”: Several screws came loose and the metal plate was crooked afterwards, and needed to be replaced. Don’t want to imagine, how much your knees hurt under impacts from snowboarding if they’re already hurting in normal life…

Wish you luck with the surgery and hope it’ll lead to full recover.

I hope your surgery turns out well (whenever it might be) and you're ready for the start of the season. I had my right knee scoped back in January (medial meniscus tear) and was back on my board 20 days later. In retrospect it wasn't the best move I've ever made (three weeks wasn't enough rehab time to strengthen supporting muscles) but we had such a good winter I didn't want to miss it. Once the season ended in March I was able to start doing more leg work and rode my bike more this summer. Feels pretty darn good right now and I'm hoping for a pain free season - and seasons to come.

These are the times when you go outside, wave your fist at the heavens, and scream something.
