    Oh geez, em, that still sounds awfully painful. My knee has just been acting up because of the cold; the idea of tearing anything sounds horrendously painful to me right about now. What happens from here on out? PT? Will you be back riding by Xmas?

    I'm waiting to get a call from the doctor who operated on my shoulder in January - he was going to take a look at my MRI images and then talk to me about what he thought might be a good course of action. It's a little tough since I won't be able to go in to see him until I get out of school for winter break. I'm guessing no riding, although I'm tentatively thinking about sitting on Nikki and just going for a walk while I'm home for Thanksgiving.

    In the meantime, taking it easy and trying to keep a good attitude about the whole thing.

    Ouch, ouch and ouch - but I agree with BuddyRoo on the ACL part.

    So what does the orthopod want you to do? Surgery or wait & see?

    Hope yours resolves as mine did, but IIRC, mine just involved a tear on one of the horns.

    ETA: just saw your update and wanted to say: CAREFUL about riding!
    I could not even get on w/o some pain and dismounting was waaay worse.
    Picture me, sliding down the 17h Wall of horse so as not to land with any weight at all on the bad knee.
    If you can get on, drop your stirrups as that hurt too.
    Any minute movement of the knee hurt - you just don't realize all of the tiny isometric movements your knee makes when you are sitting on a horse.

    Surgery over my winter break is pretty much confirmed. Anyone have experience with meniscectomies?

    Okay so I had my surgery this morning at 7:30. Feeling pretty crappy now, but it's SO much better than after my shoulder surgery was. I start PT tomorrow and have to use a cane in the meantime if I have to walk out to the bathroom. The surgeon said I'll probably be riding again in 3 weeks!

    Yay for supershorty!
    My other knee has started to twinge like the meniscified one, so it is cheering to hear your surgery went well and the back to riding prognosis is great!
    However, you are younger than me, so MMMV
