I visited my knee specialist yesterday, he's happy with my progress & I am now cleared to drive & am walking using only the one crutch, I've been told a couple more weeks with a little walking each day until I'm able to walk unassisted & hopefully I will be able to return to work in another 4 weeks or so.

Physio wise I now have some additional excersises to add to my daily routine.


The cartilage could take up to 18 months to fully regrow, so it will be a slow process but one I would highly recommend. I have pretty much full pain free movement now & need to work on walking correctly as I am still compensating by taking most of the load with my left leg.

I was given these pics of the inside of my knee, images 1-4 show the tears & lesions in the meniscus. 5 shows the area cleaned up & the holes that were drilled for the stem cell solution & 6 is the area once the solution was applied
