Bony Oedema?

the official word is ... i have a swollen knee :)

saw the surgeon last night.
he agrees that the itb surgery/site should be fine from that type of (side) impact.
agrees with me and spud and whippet that i havent been running enough to have a stressie! : he has told me before that no-one knows what bony oedema/bruising means on MR scans and just reflects i was uping the mileage.
having said this my shin pain probably was from this oedema/bruising.
the 'fracture lines' are just where the oedema has decided to stop at the old growth plate site.
i dont have a fracture and he didnt want a bone scan.
its nice to know my tibia isnt in 3 pieces.
i have had 4 MRI scans now over the years and all but one has shown bony oedema.
as far as i am concerned if you dont have a bruised/swollen bone youre not running hard enough ;)

agrees that the ligaments are all fine and basically my knee is just 'swollen' from the husky attack.
presumes i must have squashed one of the menisci or something when the knee buckled.

so as tim said: the rest of us wouldve just iced it and seen how it went :)

not sure when i will be back - still limping around on it.
hoping to be back in a couple of weeks that way i wont lose much in the way of fitness or muscle tone.
still hoping to get to kepler but wont book anything until a few weeks before.
thanks for all the supportive comments :)

stupid dog!
still love her though.
might give her a cuddle now.

Damn UCB - that's no good. You're supposed to be taking care of yourself.
