At my age?? What exactly should I be doing at "my age"??
Trust me when I say that I have NOT had a typical life.
Why the hell should I have a typical old age.
Believe me, I would sooner go out doing something I like to do, rather than sit on a couch waiting to wither up and die.
Now, back to my normally scheduled blog!
My knee injury is due to a combination of accumulated injuries over my life. Yes, it is my knee that has had two previous surgeries and yes, I was pushing the proverbial envelope by adding a little too much cycling to my already busy schedule.
My fault, I've got big shoulder's and yes, I know that I was "over training" so to speak.
I had xrays taken and the meniscus and bones seem fine, however there was a shadow that the nurse practitioner couldn't explain.
She then proceeded to tell me I was too old to be running and that it was my IT band. GAH!!!
I said let me see the xrays and then told her that from the looks of it, the problem was my patella (I had to show her where part of my patella is missing from surgery) and not IT and that the swelling is exactly where patella tendinitis and soft tissue damage would occur. She then took another look and said maybe you're right! So, then we looked through the Internet and yes, it is that and then some.
So, basically take two Advil and call me in the morning sort of horse shit....
I'm icing, taking Advil, using compression and elevation, I'm even sitting here at the office with my leg up on my garbage pail. yada, yada...
My S.I. joint and back are still giving me issues, and I'm guessing that is where all this stemmed from.
Oh well, but I'm okay, really, I've hurt myself worse in the past.
The only thing pissing me off right now is everyone telling me I'm too old to be doing this....
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
