I was wondering if enyone out there has gone through this before. ( I'm sure there is ). I've been having problems with my knees for quite some time, and was told I had arthritis. Well about 7 weeks ago my left knee gave out on me while walking down some steps and I thought I pulled a muscle. Went to the dr. and he wraped it in support bandage and told me to pack it with ice. Went back to Dr. for follow up 2 weeks later and it hadn't gotten any better. I had a MRI and found out I had a torn meniscus. I haven't been able to ride for the last 7 weeks and now I need to have surgery. Has anyone had this surgery before and how long does it usually take to heal before you can ride? It's been a real bummer !
