Was in pitching surf, kicked board away on the air drop but landed funny and kinda got compressed into the board. Knee wore the compression the worst.

No sharp pains but for sure weak and loss of stability.

Not so used to nursing a knee injury like this one. Do I wear a knee sleeve always, or just while active? It feels more stable when on but I dont want to learn to rely on it.

Happened about 2wks ago. Was expecting to be back to 100% by now. Maybe its just the aging.

after 4 weeks of rest then try to surf I went to the doc for a similar issue. He thinks it's slight meniscus tear. He said rest it longer (don't surf) and he is sending me to PT. Looks like my Mammoth trip at the end of the month is toast frown

FML.

Knee all better? Sleeves feel good and remind one to be a bit "easy" on the knee but really provide no real support. That takes a dedicated bracing system.

Toughed it out for a couple snowboarding trips which probably put me onto a delayed recovery.

Weakness is largely gone but has some sharp pains now and again, like if I run up some stairs or try and mash on the road bike.

Frustrating to say the least. Have been largely out of the water since the injury. No hind leg rippage, that’s for sure.

At what point do I go in for a closer look?

Tough call. Can't hurt to have the knee specialist look at it.
