The injury occurred 9 weekd ago while on a stationary weight machine doing leg curls to build hamstring strength at a machine and weight I had been using for 5 months. There is still some pain on weight bearing and Dr. Bert Zarins at MGH(who examined me twice and read the x-rays and MRI) said to avoid any activity which causes pain. He recommmeded biking and swimming if they do not cause pain and thought I could do Physical Therapy to build strength in muscles above knee as long as that did not cause pain.
Would this information modify your answer.
How soon after pain stops may I start playing golf? Unless you think I may play with the pain.
I am afraid the the twisting of my knee to swing the club might may the fracture worse or the pain worse.
