I decided I needed professional help for my knee pain. All I really wanted was an X-ray. I didn’t get one. He agreed with me that it’s IT Band Syndrome (yay for my diagnosing skills) and that I just need to continue treatment for a lot longer. 5 weeks, in fact. If I am still having problems 4 weeks in he’ll give me an MRI. I’m not pleased with this prognosis. 5 weeks seems like a lifetime. At any rate, here’s the workout plan:
Saturday, Tuesday, Friday
Sunday, Wesnesday: Gentle Yoga
Monday, Wednesday: Bike up to an hour, as tolerated.
Everyday I am doing rehabilitation exercises. Every other day I will Ultrasound with an antiinflammatory medication, and do an Iontophoresis treatment with a steroid medication. He gave me a presceiption antiinflammatory, but I usually can’t tolerate those.
I am going to.focus more on.my calorie count and try to continue to lose weight. I have been eating a lot lately. Time to get it under control!
I will also try to get a massage when I can afford it, but funds are low lately. I have a few family trips to budget for, a new computer, and pay taxes. Oy.
