Knee - lucky escape I think.

Postby Nut » Fri Feb 26, 2016 1:06 pm

2 things I learnt this week:

You can buy reasonably sturdy crutches at Argos (http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/p ... 650861.htm)

and

After weeks of inactivity, a quick stretch in a draughty skatepark (Sourcepark, Hastings - is really good) does not constitute a warm up.

Right knee (back foot), probably still a bit cold, fakie disaster, kinda made it but went down anyway, stood up, went to walk away - first step: bang, immobile.

Soft tissue damage, subject to another physio appt.

Ouch!
Hopefully it's quick to heal

And who new Argos sold crutches!
Been wondering if that Hastings park is worth the drive down in the Easter break

thanks both, it's the end of the third day and I can almost straighten it. Little tippy-toe steps too.

We knew the big bowl was going to be BMXy, the little bowl was a pleasant surprise. No problems with slip, I thought at the cost of being a little slow - but others thought it was fast. I'm slow.

Bowls - great, staff - excellent - that's all I saw :) Maybe a little expensive.

It's knee week here at MAS.

Mine was diagnosed as a lateral meniscal tear, had an MRI yesterday and physio starts next week. TBF, I've had very little need for the NHS over the years. When I finally did go to the doctor, the care has been pretty good.

Good to hear. It was nice seeing you have a tentative roll around at shoreham last week - but don't be tempted to do too much too soon! better to heal properly first :)

Staying off it until my first physio at least. Hoping they'll agree that some light exercise would be beneficial. ..-

I've had to pause the physio for a bit - working the right side has wobbled something loose on my left :(

Been doing the prescribed physio for a couple of weeks when all of a sudden the muscles at the top of my right leg just started to give way after 5mins walking.
It could be related to my ongoing glass back but having eased off the physio I can now walk for 20-30mins again. (Dogs)

Back there again on the 30th - the knee is doing alright., they've got to help with my back now surely?
