According to my Plastic Surgeon (yeah, I have one on speed dial, don't you?), it could have been "growing" for some time and then suddenly, "popped" out from behind a tendon or something to become visible.
She said it needs to be surgically removed (was hoping it could just be drained) and that I would need to take some time off of running. I asked how long and that is where it got complicated.
You see, she said that it could be a 30 minute "procedure" and I could be back running in a week. Or it could be "attached" and take much longer to heal, like 2-3 weeks.
Ummmm, I am supposed to start marathon training on July 25th.... yeah, about this surgery... I do not have time to risk 3 weeks off of training. Sure I have a huge base and I am in good shape, but this is a marathon we are talking about. And it is set, in November, with BOB!
I haven't decided completely yet... hubs thinks I should do it now; but then again, he doesn't want me to run another marathon either. I take that back, he doesn't mind me running the marathon, training for it is the real problem.
It only "hurts" after I touch it. So far it hasn't hurt during my runs or anything else. Doctor said I could wait, that there would be no harm in waiting until after the marathon!
What would you do?
