Oh pooh. I am sure I have bored you all with my kind of cool story about breaking my leg falling part way down an Icelandic mountain?? Actually I dislocated my knee cap and fractured bits off the back......Anyhow whilst waiting to start our game of badminton 10 days ago I sat on a very low bench and felt something in my right leg go ping.....no really it went ping.
Have carried on walking and exercising and generally trying to ignore it but the pain has been getting worse and worse and I was up half of last night because I couldn't find a comfy position and it is really swollen.
I can put up with the kind of wear and tear pain and stiffness of the other knee but this is SOMETHING ELSE!!
So bimbled off to the doc who reckons I might have torn a cartilage or agrees with my theory that I have torn scar tissue.
Need an xray...mri and referral to an Orthopaedic bl**dy surgeon depending on results. I AM REALLY REALLY PI$$ED OFF!! (can you tell?????)
Please people help me stay on track. I am so enjoying my exercise and healthy eating I am dead scared that I might allow this to derail me.
