RE: Microfracture Knee Surgery

Everything depends on where your lesion is. If it is in a weightbearing area, you have to be non-weightbearing for 6 weeks, and might have difficulty ever running again, but if it is not then you don't have to be non-weightbearing, you just have to be careful not to bend your knee too much. I just had microfracture in a non weight-bearing area 3.5 weeks ago, and I am walking around just fine, although I still have to ice a lot. Any sort of running is still a couple months away, but I'm hopeful. Recovery also depends how big your lesion is I think, and mine is pretty small.

When you say non-weight bearing, do you mean like behind the patella? I am just curious as to which areas in the knee are considered weight bearing. Thanks
