Vision’s Lacrosse Training Log


Three weeks and no drainage sounds pretty weird to me too, though I am not qualified at all in this area.Is your doctor a GP or a specialist? If he is a GP maybe there is no harm in getting a second opinion?


He’s my GP, I just don’t know where I’d find a specialist for this.
I’ve gotten multiple opinions from Physios. Some say it will pass with time, some say it will need to be drained.

Rec league lacrosse game, first time in over a month. My knee felt okay - no pain just tightness and some jiggling. My finger is still really bad though. We won 11-7 or something like that, scores 3 or 4

I have practice tonight with my real team. I may just go light though.


Sunday February 17, 2019

Played in my first real game in 5 weeks. My knee felt pretty good throughout the game. I fell on it a few times and it’s a bit sore to touch now but I wasn’t limited too much. Oddly the liquid sack pretty much disappeared after playing, maybe from the movement or the compression. It’s still swollen though and there is a hard lump above my patella, at the quad tendon I believe.

I almost made it through the game but with two minutes remaining I got slashed directly on my bad finger. It was in serious pain but x-rays show no fracture.

We won 9-7 and are now sitting in second place.

Back on the advil and ice. Hopefully I’ll be good to suit-up on Saturday.
