Thanks for all the advice guys. I think weight loss is my main focus. I'm at least 12kgs heavier than when I was "in my prime" which must be putting pressure on my knees. I don't think it's anything degenerative. The cartlidge tears have both been linked to specific incidents on the court. Both involved me running backwards. I've joined a gym and am doing non weight bearing cardio, as well as gentle weights to strengthen my quads, calfs and hamstrings. Hopefully a gym program and weight loss will mean I can keep playing.
