Hello all. I’ve been rarely posting as of late due to some problems with computing systems. It seems that my work computer will not allow me to post, so I am typing this on my home computer.
In any case, I need to request prayers, healing vibes, good thoughts, whatever you like to call them on behalf of myself. One and a half weeks ago, I went on a rampage and ran two days in that week, sandwiching a bike ride. Now in my days gone by, this would have been no big deal – something i could have easily done all in one day. What ensued on the following days I can only describe as a Baker’s cyst. After two days rest, most of the swelling subsided, which also happened to coincide with my doctor’s appointment (orthopedic surgeon). X-rays showed nothing, and palpation yielded nothing. I was prescribed ten days of Vioxx, and told to take it easy a few days, then go back to regular activity.
So, I go beyond the recommended few days, and do ONE easy run. I’m back where I started. Another doc’s appointment, and I now have an MRI scheduled for Friday morning, with results to come a week later (can anyone tell me why it takes a full week to get results from an instantaneous computer file?). In the meantime, I’m in near constant niggling pain. I suspect a meniscal tear, but can’t recollect any event that would have caused it.
Any good thoughts you can send my way will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks – brider
