Well after resting my injured knee for a week , using ice packs etc and physio as per the link Ali sent me my doctors appointment finally arrived. Well i say doctor, actually it was the practitioner nurse as no doctors available. After inspection she seems to think as there is no redness or swelling that it is most likely arthritic problem. Not totally unexpected as i smashed my knee to pieces when i was 17 in a motorbike accident. She suggests that Steroid injections will help so i'm booked in for that. Will see how it goes. I'm going to be gutted if i can't keep running. I've bought a knee support, will see if that helps too. Only problem, steroid injections earliest available appointment is 15th JULY!!!! . I love living on the Isle of Wight but there is a serious problem with GP shortages here. Oh well, off to the harbour to sit in the sun and drink a red wine or 2 . Have a good weekend everyone!
