After some weeks with tenderness and mild stinging on the medial part of left knee around Christmas last year Iím now finally diagnosed with bone marrow edema in the medial femur condyle, posterior.
So from being competitive in my age group two plus months ago my activity is now reduced to swimming, very light and easy cycling and some strength training on upper body and instructions from both the physiotherapist and doc about total rest of the injured leg!
I can live with that for a while but do to pain even when walking I begin to believe that ďits game overĒ
Donít get me wrong Iím not trying to make it looks like the world is falling apart, (Iím through that stage) but Iím not a ďspring chickenĒ anymore and to more I read up on bone marrow edema to more it seems as this is not only overuse but also age related and by that probably even harder if at all possible to recover from!
Anyone had this kind of injury and recovered, any treatment, exercises, whatever which have helped except from the dreadful word rest?
Thanks and Regards
