How long did your recovery take?
After how many weeks/months did you go back to training?
I will have the operation next month and would like to know what I can expect from it.

Just had first surgery for a tear 4 weeks ago. Was ripping carpet out of a house 3 days later. No...I am not a beast...still easing back into my workout routine...slowly.

My mom went through two knee surgeries. She had meniscus tears on both.

She wasn't very active before because it hurt everytime she walked or when she got up. Now, after gone through two surgery and the much needed physio therapy, she is in better shape to where she doesn't walk funny. She walks like normal. I am so proud of her that she went through with it instead of waiting.
