I saw the orthopaedic surgeon this afternoon and after giving me a very thorough examination and viewing my films he was not surprised that the cortisone didn't work and said it is evident that surgery is needed.
He said the cause was likely the result of an injury left too long (I have a high tolerance to pain) coupled with poor biodynamics and inadequate leg and core strength. He was booked out for 4 weeks but I managed to negotiate with him and he had his appointments lady schedule me in for this Friday.
He said typically after this sort of surgery I can expect to be off my feet for 2 weeks before starting to cycle, which he said I should keep doing long term, and including carefully planned remedial exercises. After another 2+ weeks (exact timing is individual and only my physio and I will know when the time is right) I will be able to introduce slow running.
He did mention that what he had said was based on a typical situation and that depending what he finds when in my knee recovery and running return time could be longer, although not shorter.
All in all I am feeling much more positive about the possibility of distance running now than I was before I saw him.
