Saw my PT this morning and he didn’t like what he saw from my leg. There is definitely some abnormal swelling, edema in the ankle and bulging veins behind the knee. Based on this, he put a call into the surgeon to see me earlier than next Tuesday. I head over to Dr. Slauterbeck’s tomorrow afternoon to have him take a look.
Since my symptomatic run, my leg feels like there is a blood pressure cuff on it, much like it did before surgery. Those with CECS know how uncomfortable the pressurized feeling is. However, foam rolling helps relieve some pressure, at least temporarily. This turn of events makes me hopeful that some soft tissue work may help relieve these symptoms.
I’ll update more tomorrow after my appointment. Send good running vibes my way (not that anyone really wants to be running in this heat right now).
