A couple of months ago I posted about being fed up at having gone to the doctors with a strange lump on my knee hoping for a reassuring diagnosis only to be told I needed to go for an ultrasound. Being a complete hypochondriac I jumped straight to thinking I faced a future where I needed to borrow BaddieThePirate 's wooden leg but an x-ray and finally today an ultrasound later the diagnosis is... drum roll... pre-patella bursitis!
Saw a lovely consultant today who felt it probably originates from a fall onto my knee back in October (was rugby tackled by a 5 year old) and described it a 'bit of a bugger' to get rid of. However the good news is that it's totally superficial and isn't interfering with how my knee functions and I don't need to reduce my running 'in fact it's better to keep going'.
It certainly hasn't had any real impact recently other than occasionally feeling a bit sore after a long run - I even ran a lovely leisurely 8k on it this morning as a means of staying calm before my appointment and just in case it was my last 😉 and saw a swan's nest.
Now only fed up that half term is nearly over...
Happy running everyone.
