Curve ball: Emergency Room visit

So instead of a nice leisurely bike ride today I thought I’d take a visit to the Emergency Room in Madras, Oregon after a very quick ride down the side of Mount Hood.

My knee “clicks” on every rotation if I’m riding uphill. After it clicks, all muscle power is cut in that leg, only to be restored when the knee straightens beyond the angle at which it clicks. It is incredibly painful and frustrating.

The nurse just left and said that since they are not a large hospital, they will most likely just say, “if it hurts when you do that, then don’t do that.” And have me see an orthopedic specialist. I’ll wait for Doctor Jones to confirm, but I’m revising the plans. Stay tuned for details.


Crutches and a knee brace until I see someone who tells me otherwise. And NO CYCLING. How’s that for a plot twist?
