He walked in the room and said "you have a real problem".
He showed me the MRI pics, and where a normal tendon would be a black line, mine was white and frayed. Then he showed me a different pic where there was supposed to be a black circle (not sure where exactly that was), and it looked like a smushed semi circle.
He wants me to wear this lovely boot for 6 weeks.
He said it is caused by overuse, but I don't run nearly as much as some people I know!!
So, he said my running season is over. I most likely won't run again until next year.
I am having a very hard time with this. I started crying in the Dr.'s office, and haven't stopped yet.
Running is MY thing. Running is who I am. I don't get to be a Mom, so running is my baby! I'm mad! Can't I have something I love? Why does everything have to be taken from me?
Ok. I'm going to try to think positive. I know lots of people have/had injuries and had to take time off. Some of you guys have shared your stories with me. So I know if other people can get through it, I can too.
One good thing is I bought a bike and have been biking. I love it. Thankfully I can do that, I am glad to be able to do something.
I have no doubt that I will run again. I will run marathons again. This may be taken from me for now, but you better believe I will get it back.
Now I'm off to cancel the 3 marathons I had scheduled for this fall. Ahhh the tears!!
