when can i participate in triathlons(half and sprint) again

 

hello all

 

 

i have a question that my pt and orthopaedist are giving me 2 different answers and so i ask the community=

 

 

a liitle history-i had meniscus surgery on my left knee on august 6-2008-again on oct 13-2008- acl repair(patella tendon) left knee on jan 27-and then broke me left knee patella (kneecap) on feb 12-2009

 

 

have been in pt for one month-and can bike an swim minimal distances-

 

 

my question-when can i start doing sprint and half triathlons again-the mds are great-but get differing opinion-just wanted 3rd 4th and 5th opinions-

 

 

i started out fit before the surgeries and also ama 51 yr old woman -was wanting to do the savageman half in maryland on sept 20th-but unsure if its too soon--

 

 

any good opinions out there?--thanks
