return to sports from meniscus surgery
My son had a torn meniscus in his knee trimmed back at the beginning of June. He has recently begun practice for high school football. He's experiencing swelling and pain in the knee similar to before the surgery. Did he start back too soon?  Does anyone have any suggestions to deal with this?

Hi there!

Mild-moderate sports activities running etc may be initiated about 1-2 months after a meniscal surgery with gradual increase in activity, while high impact sports such as football should be restricted for upto 3-4 months after surgery. It may be beneficial to rest at this time and gradually increase the activity over the next few weeks to resume sports in the next 4-8 weeks. You may also like to get him evaluated by his doctor at this time, to look for other secondary causes that may be responsible for the pain.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
