I went back to the dr's today for the results of my xray and they tell me I have osteoarthritis.
It was a bit of a blow but from what they've said, it doesn't have to stop my running... however at the moment it's so bad I can't run... so I'm taking at least two days off... I won't make my 250kms this month. Not happy about that!!!
Not happy about the fact that it's not a condition that gets better... it will only get worse. Maybe not for some time but it's not reversible.
I'll have to search the internet to see what other runners do.
I was trying to get answers from the doctor but didn't really.
I was trying to ask him if running would aggravate it.. Obviously it will when I have the pain, but if the pain eases up, or if it's better with pain relief and I run, will I make it bad again?
I didn't get the answer to that question...
So I didn't run today and I'm really sad about that too....
