I was playing soccer in December of 2007 when i twisted the wrong direction and went down. Luckly all my ligaments were still attached and healthy. I gave the injury a few months and the pain went away. I was at a school training camp and was running bleachers when i flew out of them backwards. I went to a doctor in Houston, Texas and he said that i had torn my meniscus and it had calcified and had to be taken out. I had that surgery done in October of 2008. The surgery went well but did nothing. I have seen another doctor since and had another surgery done and they removed plyka. That surgery went awsome and i could run a week after the surgery. Now the effects are that i can't do anything that has to do with moving faster than a walk. All the doctors i have seen have no idea what the problem is.

I knew someone who had a similar problem with their knee. Their problem was the lost cushioning from the meniscus when it was removed. Much more critical in running yhen is walking. Depending on the surgery center some do transplants, others do an artifical cushion. At the same time due to your calcification you might want to check out bone spurs also.
