I need an MRI

For those who’ve been keeping up, I’ve been having trouble with my knee. Finally went to an ortho who wants to send me for an MRI. He said he suspects a torn meniscus. Yikes! He said recovery wouldn’t be so awful and that I’d recover in time for Kilimanjaro…but holy cow, I am nervous about it! 

I’m very happy that he wants to get an MRI because frankly, I don’t think I’d be satisfied or feel confident about what the situation is without one; however, I am very scared about the thought of having surgery if they discover something bad. Conversely, I am also scared about them finding nothing. Part of me would rather they find something that needs surgery than for them to come back and say, “We don’t know!”. Does that make sense?

Meanwhile, the doc said I can exercise as normal with the exception of running. That has been disappointing but for now, my focus is Kili, so I am willing to put running aside. So with that in mind, I’ve been back at the gym. I’ve been doing Body Pump and Spin. This week I will continue to do those but also elliptical. Today I went for a hike with my friends Ben and Ross. The hike was an easy 2 miler along a rolling trail. No real elevation gain. My knee definitely felt “achey”. 

I will write more when I find out the results of my MRI.
