Do we have any orthopedic doctors on the board or anyone else who might have some knowledge? Ten years ago I had a meniscus tear. 50% on the inner side was removed and the surgery went well. I had no pain and have been playing ice hockey 4Xweek at a high level even playing with former NHL players. In January, after a long walk while traveling with my family abroad, my knee was sore. When I came home and resumed playing hockey, it was completely stable but I would get a twinge of pain on that side of my knee every so often. I went to see my knee doctor and he felt around but didn’t seem too concerned about the meniscus. I had some unrelated knee pain last September and an MRI showed my knee to be in very good shape with minimal cartilage degradation. However, last Wednesday, I couldn’t follow through on my slapshot and had to leave hockey during th warm up. It hurts most often when my knee is bent and I am pushing my body upwards like walking up the stairs or even pushing down on a bike pedal. I have another appointment next Wednesday. The doctor mentioned a possible lubricant injection and maybe even platelet-rich plasma which helped my chronic hockey elbow tendinitis tremendously last summer. If my meniscus is failing, is this the type of pain I would experience? My father-in-law, former head of Orthopedics at the University of Virginia suggests just a possible strain that will heal with plain rest. I have been doing a ton of icing.
