The results from the MRI show some fluid, a bit of arthritis and a small anomaly on my meniscus. According to the doctor there were 3 options - Surgery, a cortisone shot and physical therapy, or give it more time to heal. I opted for the third option. I explained to him my main fear was doing more damage and he said that I wouldn't. So I've been on the spin bike the last 2 days.
I'm starting slow as I don't want to over do it - 7 minutes yesterday and 9 minutes today. My knee is sore, but since I'm not doing further damage, its time to HTFU and ride!
Glad to be back on the (spin) bike!
