Trauma_Junkie enjoying the peak for her marathon 2 weeks late.
The pain did settle out after resting through the night. I did not sleep well, but I did rest.
It is my old pain back. I’m feeling discouraged and bewildered, and apprehensive and confused all rolled into one big ball.
PT appointment today, PT focused on Pain control, and my pain did somewhat improve. I had a horrible attitude, mostly because of the pain, but also because one of the PT assistants who does not work with me kept trying to give me advice. She has done this in the past, always referring to my knee. I usually ignore her. FInally today she asked if I had a tear or bursitis. I just said, it was a complicated surgery. My PT explained it to her, she had a blank look, and I knew then she had NO idea what he was talking about. I hate when people try to inject themselves into your situation when they have no idea what going on. I think she realized more that I was in no mood for her loud voice. She is a nice girl, but…My mood of desperation combined with her telling me what to do for my knee, just put me over the edge.
Instructed to avoid the bike for the weekend and walk as needed, but not to do much else.
Maybe it will improve. I find myself just crying about the whole thing, more so because I am afraid and angry.
We will see what it feels like in a few days. We’ll see. This wait and see game is starting to wear on every last nerve I have.
