Venting again - now 'on the bench' again. Ran a local 5K fun run last Sunday & felt ok and finished sub-28 minutes. Two days later my knees flared up again. Saw physio who is now talking pain management not cure and a possible op for arthroscopy and debridement?Not run now for over a week to try to allow knees to recover [apart from running between 200m warmup area and discus area carrying my son's kit from one to the other due to an event overlapping on Saturday! Knees hurt after doing that].Kneecaps click a lot now and feel sore to touch all the time. The pain is 'only' 3/4 out of 10, but just won't go away. I've come home from work just to have a good to cry this evening.Trying to think positive. I have a gym between work and home that I could go to so will ask physio if I can go there and use their machines to replicate the physio - leg extensions on light weights etc. That way I can get out of the house to be on my own, work up a sweat [yes, I like to sweat! Why do you think running's so satisfying - sweat with a purpose!] maybe using the other machines...
MsE can I just say, I would love a pair of pins like yours (injury aside). My calves are unfortunately, like tree trunks and I'm currently sporting a most attractive black toe nail. When are you able to start rehab to strengthen again? I never really thought too much about how the whole treatment thing in my teens/20's was so crap until the last few weeks - this last few months has forced me to look part a fair bit on that time, and like I say, I think I just feel a bit angry now but can understand why my problems drifted on for so many years (and I don't harbour feelings of feeling as if I was some silly little girl anymore, which I think I did for a good number of years). I like to think now that things that we've gone through do make us stronger in the end.
