Well I had my appointment with the Orthopedic Doc the other day and after a long exam, they offered two possibilities. The first thing it could be is my ITB (Iliotibial Band Syndrome) and the second is a torn meniscus. They took me for X-Rays which showed nothing conclusive. I then went for an MRI (what a noisy contraption) to rule out a torn meniscus. I go back for a follow-up appointment on November 1st, hopefully they will have some answers then.
For now all I can do is bike, swim and some core workouts that don’t involve the knee. I hope everything works out...I really like this sport!
