I had an op 3 weeks ago to remove floating bone in my knee and remove and repair damaged cartilage. Day procedure done with an arthroscopy. I thought it would be 2 weeks rets then back to light running. I called the clinic today and finally got an answer to this question as the surgeons secretary has bene of for a few weeks and was told the surgeon said no running until my follow up April 14th!

I'm itching to get back in the hope I can do at least a half ironmen this year so was surprised it will be almost 2 months since the op when I see him and hopefully get the all clear.

Does a cartilage op really require you to take it steady for such a long time?

Yes. When you go back for your check up they may refer you for physio. Do what they say and only run when you are advised. I started at 6 weeks with short runs with walks in between and built it up from there. Get a S & C programme at your gym.
A friend of mine started running 10 days after and she has now had to have a partial knee replacement & will never run again.

In 2015 had an arthroscopy to repair slight tear on knee cartilage, I was told 3 weeks rest then able to begin very steady jogging.
But unfortunately knee got infected so had to have another arthroscopy 2 weeks later to clean knee out, then infection re-occurred so had to have another arthroscopy 1 week later to clean knee out again.
Took me well over a year to get back to racing again.
