Week 18 ... or Bust

The Doctor can see no tear. There is definite inlammation (yes, thank you, I knew that) but if there is any subcutaneous damage, they cannot find it with the MRI.

So my options begin mildly and get progressively invasive.

1. Maximize my intake of anti-inflammatory agents. 2 Aleves, twice a day. This may be all it takes to bring down the swelling and the body will absorb the fluid. Check back in ten days.

2. If there is no improvement in ten days, they may inject cortizone to achieve the same result.

3. If that also does not alleviate the problem, they may put a camera in there to find out what is wrong.

NY08 training begins tomorrow.

I would suggest trying accupuncture before they start injecting steroids. Big boobs might impede training.
