Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. asking for a mate:

    Had a knee op to repair damaged section of cartilage, in time (weeks) cartilage will replace the (disintergrating) artificial substance put in its place, there is NO metalwork in the knee, in effect it is a temporary hole-plug.

    Will he be able to get into the Territorial Army? I missed the opportunity to ask the medic earlier :roll:
     
  2. 12 weeks post op, he should start serious rehab to get back strength and proprioception.

    6-10 weeks after this he 'should'be fit enough.

    Shouldnt be any problems with applying to the TA after cartiledge repair
     
  3. cheers :)
