What lower body exercises are okay to do before surgery with a torn meniscus?
Nothing that includes a plant and twist motion, you could give yourself a buckethandle tear. I can’t think of any machine that wouldn’t be safe to use.
Yeah before I had surgery on mine a few months ago I stuck to machines such as leg extensions/curls with light weight.
Definitely ask your doctor. But, when I tore mine, my surgery wasn’t until six months later. I moved my whole family to a different house twice in that time. If it didn’t hurt me, I could do it. Good luck.
Don’t bear weight
Ask your doctor. If I had to guess probably body weight calf raises.
