My history for ref. knee was a but puffy during marathon training last autumn but not enough to cause any worries . Ran marathon in Jan without concern. Rested. Began training for a half in feb and it flared up Swollen sore and hot Had X-ray and MRI which shows I have an odd shaped knee cap Which is not tracking properly. had an injection of cortisone which gave temporary relief and prescribed Physio. physio had to discharge me after four weeks as it was too swollen to work with. So here I am waiting for an op which is hopefully happening in late August. I've tried all sorts to get some exercise but it just bites me on the bum the next day.
Marian I really hope it works out for you as I know how frustrating it is to feelyour fitness draining away. Take care x
Oh Marian that's a worry for you ! How was your mobility before the op ? At the moment I can't walk more than a couple of miles or ride a bike or do much really So i need to do something drastic. Hope it improves for you xx
Hi sarahstar80. Hope you are still checking the forum. Just wondered how your recovery has progressed ? Hope you are doing well. I'm still waiting for surgery and hoping and praying I will be back running in the autumn.
I'm also scheduled to have a lateral release in August (assuming nhs doesn't change it) I've not run since reading half in march due to shooting pains and a constant dull ache in my right leg. I had 6 weeks of Physio but there was no improvement so have been scheduled for arthroscopic surgery. Would be interested to hear how your op and recovery go sarahstar80. Wishing you good luck if it's imminent. X
