Tomorrow marks two weeks since I had half of my left meniscus surgically removed. It feels like it was a lot longer ago than that and that probably explains the frustration at the perceived lack of progress I felt today.
I managed 20km on the fixie today and I’m walking with barely a limp, but once again I was on my feet most of the day after riding instead of icing immediately, and so the swelling slowly built up as the day went on.
Am I doing too much? Undoubtedly, but I’m also very aware that I have to take it slowly. I guess I just have to find the perfect balance.
My Doc knows me quite well and he knew what he was doing last week when he didn’t give me a referral to visit my physio, even though I had already made the appointment. I go to see the Doc again on Friday when he’ll take my two stitches out and then I’ll begin the rehab process in earnest.
