OK……….. so for 4 maybe even 5 months now I’ve been fighting swelling in my knee, my good knee. I tired resting it, that didn’t help, so two weeks ago I got a cortisone shot. That put me on a 2 week – nothing but light rowing and mobility time out.
While it was beyond difficult and frustrating to have to sit on the sidelines and watch everyone else have fun, I tried to focus on the positive and doing what I could to improve, which was follow the rules. Rest and recover.
Today was my third day of working on getting back after it. While I was putting weights away I had the worst painful pop in my knee and I thought ‘shit, I’m done for’ It hurt so bad, like pain rumbled through my body kind of pain. I gathered my bearings and took a step……..PAIN FREE……WHHHHHHAAATT?????
Bent it……PAIN FREE????
Looked for the fluid that had been sticking out of my knee every time I bent it……GONE!!!
I have NO CLUE what happened, and I’m actually quite weirded out by it, but all I know is the sweeling is gone and I’m pain free. The clouds have parted and the angles are singing. So to night I CELEBRATE! After 5 months I am pain free for the first time.
