Last summer in 2020 I torn the menscius in my right knee and this prevented me from hiking all summer and fall. It was just too painful.  I gave it months to heal on its own but it never quite did.  So 2 weeks ago on April 2 — I had arthroscopy to resect the tear.  I am now in recovery and doing my PT religiously.  I hope so much to be able to resume hiking this spring and perhaps just perhaps even get back up  my old friend Deso.  : )
