Ive had the same problem in 2007. I tore the right meniscus on the inside of the knee.
To let you know the meniscus is shaped like a horseshoe and is the cartlidge between the knee bone which stops it grinding.Now a tear on the meniscus is usually on the outer edges. You can either have a tear or it is completely seperated. A tear would mean it maybe be able to be sewn back together if its on the outer edge, only 10% of the meniscus has a good blood supply, which means the outer edge will heal. If its not on the edge then the Dr will have to cut, and remove the damaged meniscus. And in my case they drilled multiple holes in my knee cap, to allow cartlidge to grow down along my knee bone to stop the bones grinding and allow more blood to the meniscus. If its torn awa, they will cut it off and them reshape the rest of the meniscus to cover the part thats been removed.
You will be six weeks on crutches and expect another 3 months of physio twice a week. It took me 12 months before I was back playing badminton at the highest level I can acheive. My knee still gives us, every so often if I dont have proper footwork.
Make sure you do your physio exercises, also reserach what the surgery is, so you know what to expect and how to heal.

Well, I'm going in next week to fix it. Report mentioned a longitudinal-horizontal and a oblique tear of the posterior horn of the internal meniscus median section . Chondromalacia patella (median and paramedian) developed due to Patellofemoral dysplasia .
The oblique tear isn't good news , the damaged part of the meniscus will be removed and the area smoothened out.
I twisted my knee when I was a teenager while playing football (soccer) 27 years ago. I never really recovered from that, couldn't bend the knee fully since then. An investigative arthroscopy was done in 1983, but nothing was found.
Now, with all the technological advances in medicine (compared to 27 years ago) , I may be lucky. I'll need to do some physiotherapy for that knee cap issue and also for the post-op. Perhaps I'll be able to bend the knee fully again .

It's been 8 days since the scope. Massive repair works done. Got of the crutches yesterday, physio looming up in a couple of weeks.
The days are getting closer...the days to hear that "ting" "ting" "whootish"

its not difficult to see why these injurys occur go to youtube, watch a badminton video and watch his knees. There is a constant amount of strain throughout the rally. Surely you can think logically for yourself :S

How about including organic apple cider vinegar into your diet and see if it helps your knees? It helps for me. I really don't know how or why it works. I suspect the acetic acid helps the body's absorption of minerals and other nutrients in a more efficient way from the foods you eat. It may be in my head but I also feel I now have more energy.

Try to start off with 2 teaspoonful of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water and drink it with a straw before meal. Do this 3 times a day. In two to three days time you will notice your complexion and your nails taking on a more pinkish or reddish tint, signs that blood flow and nutrients to the more distant and harder to reach parts of your body are getting there. In between you can mix apple cider vinegar into a bottle of water to be used as fluids when you play badminton. You can also use it in your foods, salads, and chillies. You can safely consume about 20 teaspoonful or even more in a day, but 6 teaspoonfuls is the minimum.
After one to two weeks you will find you get that extra spring in your legs; your fingers and hairs become stronger, and you actually have more energy.

My Knee started to hurt about 2 years ago and progressed. I started with a knee support and now I have to wear it even when i dont play sometimes. I use a magnetic knee support and it is more efficient. I take Glucosamine/Chondroitin + I wear a heat pack when the situation is worse. I even tried Aloe-Vera gel which was good for a while. But overall I found that drinking an emulsion of Cod Liver Oil in Milk early morning had the best effect of reducing the pain by at least 50%. I know thought that sooner or later I will hv to see a specialist and prob hv an MRI. I play 4-6 hrs a week only.

This is my left knee now......
Twisted it big time while landing after a jump smash.....
Not I have this strap with metal braces on the side to limit the rotational movement. Doctor said the ligaments are fine but possible some cartilage injury. So at least a month without badminton.....

We have that here and I always wondered if U can actually PLAY with it? App when U wear it u don't feel the pressure on the joint, is that true? If it is, I am getting one tomorrow to wear especially at work when I am mainly on my feet.
