Some of you may have seen my replies a couple of weeks ago on the post on sit bone pain:
sit bone pain curable?
Well, I've been to the doctor and had xrays and they were not helpful so a MRI was ordered. I just got back from the Orthopedic Doctor today. He looked at the MRI's and the memo from the radiologist and unfortunately it isn't as simple as he thought it might be (had hoped a Cyst). He's telling me a lot of these long syllable medical words that refer to different types of cancer. In fact my next visit is Wednesday with an Oncologist to take the next steps on determining what the heck this mass is that is between my sit bone and where you sit on the saddle. There were some other very small "blips" in some of the surrounding tissue that I saw and read about in the memo.
While I'm continue to be optimistic and hopeful it's just something that's been created as the result of irritation from the saddle, this is not heading in a direction I expected it to go. Needless to say I'm still trying to sort all this out. A LOT of different thoughts run through your mind at a time like this.
I have a 100 mile organized ride Sunday and our first time trial of the season Tuesday night. I plan to ride like heck just in case I'm forced to be out of the saddle for a while.
Thanks for letting me share my situation-it helps me sort my thoughts.
