I went to the doctor’s Thursday regarding the pain around my right knee cap. Long story short, I have patellar tendonitis. Rx is a knee strap (which I have to wear all day. I think I’m going to get a permanent groove around my leg from it) and a month of physical therapy – also, NO RUNNING. Argh. I can continue with my swimming and cycling. I’m also ok’d for the elliptical/true strider, which will somewhat replace the running (but it’s not the same). Hopefully, all will heal nicely and I’ll be ok to ease into running. If not, then I’m looking at a blood injection in the inured area. Um…let’s just say, I’ll be following my doctor’s orders to the letter.
