Alex Rodriguez’s Torn Meniscus by John Elder Posted Mon 11 Jul 2011 10:53am It seems like this year’s Major League Baseball season has been riddled with injuries. Unfortunately, you can add another big name to that list. It was announced at the end of last week that Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees would miss 4-6 weeks of action after an MRI revealed a torn meniscus in his right knee. What’s interesting i ...

The verdict: Torn meniscus by stipeygirl75 Posted Thu 09 Dec 2010 12:00am OK when the doc announced I needed another surgery, he expressed extreme dismay and said, "What is going on with your body? You're set to have more surgeries than ME!" I'd guess he's in his mid 40s. I don't really feel that way at all - I know I have EDS/Chiari and that's why my body tends to fall apart more quickly than others. I'm OK with that ... Read on »

Torn - 2.0 by Eric .. Patient Expert Posted Thu 19 May 2011 9:40pm I was looking at my list of posts and things didn't look quite right. My last post was in draft mode and there was no text, or images. Then I remembered that there were some problems with Blogger last week. Apparently my post about my torn meniscus was wiped out. I'm pretty bummed about it because I thought it was a good post. So to reca ... Read on »
Lacey-Mae's knee... again by Selly Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Tue 26 Aug 2008 4:00pm I know, I've devoted entirely too much of my time to this but at this point, I do not care. Word on the street (Why do I always say this when I actually mean "I read on a message board that...") is that she may have torn her meniscus. Ouch. And, if this the people who believe this are right, it probably means no more Lacey o ... Read on »
The Dreaded “Jeremy Lin Knee” by John Elder Posted Mon 09 Apr 2012 6:07pm What? You’ve never heard of “Jeremy Lin Knee” before? Well, that’s just Lin-sane. Actually, until I read an article about it this morning, I hadn’t either. In case you have no idea what, or who, I’m talking about, Jeremy Lin is the NY Knicks’ point guard who took the world by storm this season. An unheralded (and undrafted) guard ... Read on »

Q&A: Knee issues by Mike R. Healthy Living Professional Posted Fri 12 Dec 2008 2:58pm Mike- I've written you before, but this time I'm nervous and need some advice. I have an MRI scheduled for Monday, and have been told I most likely have a torn meniscus (left knee, medial meniscus) and possibly a partial tear of the ACL. I know the exact moment I noticed a problem, but there was no trauma or pain to speak of. I was play ... Read on »
In response to odd search terms by Selly Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Tue 26 Aug 2008 11:01am I've seen a trend in the search terms that lead to my blog, but many of them are dance related but irrelevant to this site. So, I've decided to try and address some of these popular questions: 1.) Why did Shauna Noland replace Lacey Schwimmer on the SYTYCD tour? Lacey had a torn meniscus and was in California for phys ...

This is progress? by Amy G. Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Wed 22 Oct 2008 6:15pm Last night I met Pam and Olivia to join them for their regularly scheduled Monday night run. I was a little worried since last time they ran wayyy too fast for me, but I decided I'd just drop behind and have a nice run on my own, if I had to. The weather was cool and breezy, nice. I know sooner or later it's going to heat up to blistering ... Read on »
