It's been awhile since I've posted here. I don't know if I mentioned this on MT before, but I've had issues with my left knee that I've ignored for about four years, after a doctor said that he couldn't see anything on the MRI. Got it looked at again, and they found the meniscus torn in two places and my knee cap is out of place. I will be receiving the call to schedule the surgery soon, and it looks like there will be no MA training for three months following the surgery. Apparently, I will likely require crutches for two weeks, and I can walk normally after that... I just can't run or do anything else "athletic." I'm curious as to whether or not anyone here has any experience with this, and what you did to stay in shape. I'm considering hitting the gym, and doing things like dips, bench presses, etc; in lieu of pushups, and maybe finding a machine that works your core without requiring the use of legs. Maybe even finding out of there's a such thing as "legless cardio." Does anyone here have any input to give?
