Would you recommend physio straight away or rest and recovery for a few months, then physio?

I'd go see what a physio has to say. If you leave it, you will decondition and the recovery will be longer, harder and less successful. They'd likely give you some gentle range of motion and strengthening exercises.

I did my meniscus when i was a teenager and had to wait until I was 18 to get surgery. My knee used to lock in either the straight position or bent and i couldnt move it for days.

The first surgery I got was to pin the cartilage together and hoped it healed together. Well that failed and it tore again within days by doing barely anything.

Next surgery they just cut the chunk of cartilage out. My knee still has problems to this day some 20 years later.

I have femoroacetabular acetabular impingement in my hip. My doc has avoided arthroscopy, stating he will only recommend that until every other avenue has been explored. Reckons I'm too young for any kind of hip surgery, and that more doctors are not racing into arthroscopic surgery in these cases

Had my first physio appointment on Thursday and it went well. He gave me some stretches to do, daily, to stretch & strengthen the muscles around the knee. Quad, calf and glute stretches and some single leg squats. Then he did a quick thigh massage to get rid of a few nasty knots and then a heat pack. He seemed confident that I'd be running again in a few months - he'd had a similar injury a few years ago and he regularly does 10 - 15 km runs and cycles a lot. So that was reassuring.

Few months is a great deal, gerg. Take it as a good break off running. Enjoy it.

The magpies will love having me back on the bike. I have another physio appointment tomorrow and the stretches/exercises have been going well so far.

Sydney marathon tomorrow!

I’ll be running this one on short notice to help raise money for a friends family, who have just been rocked by the dignaosis of aggressive breast cancer. Kitty, my fiends wife, has been training for a year for this, to celebrate her 42nd birthday with her first marathon. She was diagnosed 2 weeks ago, will still attempt the run tomorrow, and go for surgery to remove the cancer on Wednesday. She’s an amazing woman!
