I lied to you. Sunday's run sucked. I came home and cried. My knee hurt so bad.
Monday morning I decided to call the orthopedist. I just got back from the appointment and I have been benched.
I am heartbroken. I will not be participating in the Waterfront Triathlon this weekend.
The doc thinks that I am suffering complications that are similar to those that led to my meniscus surgery in 2001. Apparently, after a meniscus surgery your patella can "fall" to the side where the meniscus was clipped and cause everything to get "roughed up." I am getting an MRI on Friday to see to what extent it is "roughed up". Then the doc will decide if I need a scope to get it "cleaned up in there." He asked me to stay off it as much as possible until after the MRI to see if some of the swelling will go down.
On the positive side he said that I have the nicest hamstrings he has seen in a long time. At this point I'll take the good news where I can get it!
So, our team is having a lunch meeting tomorrow to see if Momma and Kim want to forge on without me, or if we are going to withdrawal from the race.
Thanks again for your support on this issue, I'll update you when I get some news!
