my english is usually good enough to talk to english-speaking persons and to comment on hockey-forums, not good enough for medicine conversations so I hope you`ll get me
here`s my story:
last summer my knee began to hurt while I began to shape up for the new season. I played the whole season, I just had to, my knee hurted more and more.
in spring I did an MRI and they diagnosed a grade 2 cartilage damage with a crack in it.
now, after a long frustrating summer with a lot of things I tried I`m back on the ice, feels ok so far
has anyone of you, your team-mates, friends, players etc a
cartilage damage and how do/did you/they deal with it?
I'm missing about 30ish% of the cartilage from both knee caps and some more from my meniscus. I also work on my feet so they're pretty much always in pain.
What I do now:
When I skate I use a brace on each knee (http://bungapads.com/bunga-knee-brac...e-support.html) They're getting old and I think I need to upgrade.
Advil for pain. (I've tried glucosamine but it never did much for me.)
Went from 1/2" hollow to 5/8". The shallower hollow allowed for less chance of me catching an edge and something tweaking. For me, if something is going to give it's going to be in my knee.
I'm on the ice 1-2x per week. I try and take it easy as I'm not making a living from playing and I don't want to lose any more cartilage.
