I’m not sure if I’m disappointed or relieved right now. My appointment with the orthopedic surgeon was kind of a let down. I went for x-rays which apparently showed nothing. The doctor told me that he’s leaning toward just really bad tendonitis but is scheduling me for a MRI to double check. The MRI will confirm or deny tendonitis or a stress fracture.
I guess I’m happy that it’s not stress fracture but I’m super frustrated. I just want to know what’s wrong with me so that I can fix it and get back into training. I suppose the MRI will do that. From there if it’s just tendonitis I’ll do some heavy duty physical therapy complete will some nasty deep tissue work. Better than a boot. I am seriously starting to think that this is all in my head.
I also found out that apparently my knees are weird. Not the doctors words of course. My knee caps track up and out rather than just straight up and down. I need to be aware of potential injury and really take care of them.
So now I just wait. This is the last week of the yoga challenge. I’ve done 17 classes, it will be 18 after the class I do tonight. If I got to every class for the rest of the month I’ll hit my 25 classes. Not so shabby.
