Thank you so much to all of you who have been asking about my knee. Today I finally had my appointment with one of Zürich’s top sports doctors – so I can now report that at least I know what is going on. As I already knew, there is a large oedema (bone bruise) inside my knee, which isn’t going to go away in a hurry. The ligaments on the inside of my knee are also partially torn….again time is the answer. I have to start physio and water therapy to build up the muscles again, take medication to stimulate more calcium production and yes, you’ve guessed it….rest, do nothing, sit with my leg up…..yawn…
So boredom and no sport will continue for the next couple of months, but it should start to get better…and the doctor did promise me that if I’m good and let everything heal then I could be up and running again in the spring. Maybe I’ll even manage a little yoga and pilates before then if I’m very careful.
So I shall be swimming, ladies….not my sport at all….but if it helps, then it’s worthwhile. And at least it will get me out of the house!
In the meantime I’ve been doing quite a lot of drinking tea, watching amazing tennis from the Australian Open and knitting away at this rather natty little shawl. I just love the border – and it’s way easier than I thought it would be!
