Jeez, it's my knees...

Postby Greg66 Tri v2.0 » Tue Dec 18, 2012 14:55 pm

Actually, my knees are fine. One of the few bits of me that rarely gives me gyp these days.

Isn't that nice?

No, it's not nice. My knee is giving me gyp. My hand is improving slowly, not good enough for road levers yet but can cope with MTB brakes. So now the knee is limiting my riding. Gash is healing well though.

You fell of your bike and developed a Gash? I must try and keep it rubberside down.

This has given me an unwelcome insight into the (absence of) conjugal activities in the Veronese68 household.

You both have my sympathies.

Oddly enough I was at the doctor's yesterday about my knee. Still giving me trouble 10 weeks after my off, and apparently I can expect this to continue until at least mid January. A bit concerned as there is family history of arthritis. I'll leave you to make your own jokes about stiffness and inflammation.

I get throbbing. Is that related to the gash healing?

I fell of, banged my knee of the tarmac or the bike smacked into it. Either way, I stupidly rode into work on it. It then was very painful. Even more stupid of me rode home on it. Even even more stupid, I attempted a 60 miles ride on it the next day.

Put me out of action for 3 weeks. It was basically lingering inflammation. Ice, ibuprofen?

Actually, belay that. I don't think I want to know.
