Knee Frustration

I finally can train again post-sutures. As the weeks have gone by getting abck inthe game my knee hurts...again! Argh! I figure it must be the inflammation kicking back in. But now it feels different. Not my kneecap, but the side and abck of my knee. slowly getting more and more painful and annoying. I live with icepacks on my knee. work...sleep...constantly. After flying on Monday it was bad enough that I emailed Teresa. She told to come in pronto...as in monday afternoon. I made my way in there on my lunch break today. this new pain...medial meniscus tear! Argh!

so what does this mean?
No RNR Half Marathon sicne it is not an important race
Still participate in Patriot's
MRI #3
50% chance - exercises to fix it on it's own.
50% chance - surgery.
I am pretty sure my body will fix it on its own, but damn this shit hurts. Enough already! Can I trade in this knee for a new one? Thanks! :)

Welcome to my world girlfriend :-)
We can be in knee pain together.

I'd get a second opinion - like from Dr Dec.

Listen to your body. You don't want to blow out your joints and reduce your years in triathlon.
