Just wondering if anyone here has every torn the cartilage in their knee and if so, how long it took to heal? Went to the ER today because of extreme pain and the ER doctor says he thinks I tore the cartilage around my knee. He said it takes 3-6 weeks to heal. When I said how soon before I can get back to training, he said it depends on ones pain threshold and how much pain the person can and is willing to endure. I have an appt. to see an orthopedic surgeon on Monday AM. I also am supposed to test for Purple belt on Monday PM Just wondering if anyone else ever had this problem with their knee and how long before you could actually stand up again with out pain?
