Last night, I was brought to the Medical City emergency room because I couldn't bend my left knee due to severe swelling. From a slight stinging sensation I felt 3 weeks ago, the pain level became unbearable as if someone was stabbing/drilling my knee. The pain developed 3 weeks after doing daily 25/min a day Jump Rope, 100-120 prison squats, and other leg exercises. (trying to strengthen them legs for SS'ing ;d).
The doctor (Cute ;d) told me that I had bone spurs on my patella and that I needed to stay off biking (S.O.B.!!!) and physical activities that would put pressure on my knee. I have an appointment with an orthopedic tomorrow to know how severe it is and what kind of treatment I need.
Anybody here who went through the same experience? How long were you asked to stay off your bike?
not exactly bone spurs but the last time i was home, i developed a case of gout on my right foot. it swelled up like a balloon and any little pressure or touch would cause extreme pain. fortunately, i had a local doctor in Marikina prescribe some strong anti-inflammatory and the swelling and pain went down almost overnight. Within 2 or 3 days, i was able to ride again. unfortunately, the attack happened the day before the subic xrc race so i was not able to race for all terra... i'm hoping to make up for it during my next trip home..
Not Bone spurs , but chondrmalcia and sore itb because I'm flat footed
My knees would get very sore after running I cant walk after
If you have access to a pool , baka deep water running would not stress your knee I do shallow water running ( waist deep )

some two years ago while still playing regular sunday basketball, i developed plantar faciitis (heel bone spurs) which made simple walking painful to my right heel and made me sidelined (from running and other sports) for almost a quarter. ortho doc told me that the only treatment for heel spurs is to have it operated where they make "kayod" (is correct trans grated ;D) the bone spurs, which causes the pain (dunno if it's the same treatment with knee spurs though).
after being sidelined from any activity for a quarter (year) and feeling that my fitness level has reached zero resistensiya, i finally disregarded doc's advise and started doing brisk walking and when things went better, went back to running and badminton. no prob naman. mas lalong no prob when i discovered mtbiking
get well soon PA

flipnidaho: uric acid ka be hell, but really can't stay away from the good stuff. ;d Right now I'm besfriends with the post op pain killers prescribed to me. Can't really walk without them.
Fafa Lenard: The doctor also advised swimming muna if I want to continue exercising. Looks like I'll trade in my baggy shorts for a pair of speedo's ;d. I hope I become a stronger swimmer in the process hehehe.
Sir Arci: Also had plantar faciitis that mysteriously dissappered. I hope my condition won't require surgery though (been through 3 surgeries already. ayaw ko na).
anthrax76: i'll just state the facts ha, i'm not bashing. alagaan mo lang yung pivots. inefficient kasi ang URT, if you think about it, active ang suspension kapag nakaupo ka lang. kasi kapag nakatayo ka at tense yung katawan, rider talaga yung shock absorber.
