Congratulations on being over the operation!

Did the Dr identify which cartilage(s) were damaged?

I had a torn medial meniscus. The Dr estimated that he removed 30-40% of it (maybe some other debris also?).

I had taken maybe 6 months off total - 3-4 months trying to heal and 2-3 months after the surgery. When I started back my legs had weakened considerably from the lack of exercise. Regaining strength added a considerable and necessary time to my recovery. My operation was in Jan and I played about June.

Your legs will not have been off as long.

Best of luck!
