arcticQn59 daysFinally!! I think I'm nearly recovered. I went on a real run last night, so I'm considering that to mean I'm recovered. I still won't play soccer (maybe never again!) and any activities will be with a bit of caution for a while at least. Man, i thougth I would never get over this.. excellent..!!!details

porcupine63 daysstretching and strenghting helps. It will probably always hurt with hard, direct falls on the knee cap. details
mindsweeper68 daysI don't recall any particular fall or impact, so I think this was a stress injury. I didn't work out while traveling through Africa, so rest seems to have healed it.details

colquhoun92166 dayswas never diagnosed officially (Physio thought it might be but needs X-ray or US to be sure) but almost certain it was a MCL tear. most likely caused from some decidedly dodgy descending in the snow. bad luck i suppose. at least i know what ligament pain now feels like and will rest earlier and for longer if it happens again (which i hope it wont). must just remember not to be stupid about it and rest properly with 3/4 weeks pain free before returning to slow gentle runs.details
Shaun Mc184 daysAfter extended rest followed by extensive physio and many hours on the bike I finally am strong enough to get back in to running.details
