Ironman & Meniscus Injury
Been laid up with knee troubles for six months. They're both healing and I didn't have surgery. Suspected meniscus tears/acl etc. Confused about having meniscus' removed - would they regrow? Are they irreplaceable? Have left them even though told by surgeon it's like keeping old tyres - so why just take them out?
In my late 40s. Do people just leave it, or do they find a way? Obviously I need to build things up over time and do a triathlon plan. Currently doing strength training to rebuild my withered quads.
My question is: What's the common practice please: do I just give up my Ironman dream? Do people just leave it, or do they find a way?
