Last year I had an arthroscopy surgery due to menisucs tear, I had a menisectomy which they removed the tear
later on i had some pains in the knee, and the mri scan showed i have a parameniscal cyst
the doctor suggested sucking the cyst and inject steroids (diprosan)
otherwise, ill need to have another surgery
does anyone know anything about the steroids injections ?
thank a head
You definitely need follow up w a good ortho that has lots of background in sports medicine even if that was not your original doctor.
Cycling is super controlled in most cases hands on bars, gluts on the seat, and most importantly your feet attached to the pedals and cranks with the revolution being the entire range of motion. You want to do zero, nothing to strain your legs, but especially the repaired one. You want to work with a doctor and or therapist that understands your hobby and can work on a cycling specific rehab that is long range. In my experience you want to enjoy your bike in almost a zero resistance gear and back off or don't ride at all if you feel pain.. Drugs need to be over the top,ultra supervised by a doctor, any substance that can mask pain should be avoided if at all possible. Your body will send signals and you have to listen. And again in my experience, both good and bad..pain during rehab should be interpreted as either stop or slow down. And it never ever means push through.
You may even want a friend or family member to video you while slowly pedaling to share w your doctor. You may also want to set alarms on your head end or phone for time defined rides..meaning get off the bike before you feel pain, tired or discomfort. Need to have a long recovery trajectory and get checked along the way..
Personally I find group riding to be dangerous because I found myself overdoing it..
Also remember to learn from old school training techniques that were disastrous. Cyclists famously had a tiny range of motion, because they didn't cross train and would get hurt walking wrong on stairs or stepping on a small thing.. a rock or stick. So often the most well balanced recovery involves lots of things besides being on the bike.. even if that is where you are ultimately trying to get to.
Don't wait to get checked.
