finally, after nearly a week, the mcl (medial collateral ligament.) is exhibiting signs of damage.
i was carrying paint cans in the hardware store and stepped wrong over a low display, forcing pressure onto my right leg. when i got home i could feel the strain through the inside of the right knee where the mcl lies.
this is ggod and bad news.
good in that now i know how to treat the injury and what to expect.
bad in that it may take as long as eight weeks to fully recover, with the knowledge that the right knee is susceptable to re-injury as the left one has been most of my life.
defenders get a break for while.....
