Firstly, cheers snowvols,killclimbz and linvillegeorge!I greatly appreciate your input, re. this matter!
Re. snowvolz: I managed to get in touch with the co-ordinator and notified him of my injury. This was a great suggestion, as originally I was not going to mention my 'situation', as I did not want to be pulled from the course. However, he has provided me w/ some semblance of peace of mind, although his response was rather ambiguous.
Re. killclimbz: In complete agreement. After speaking with the co-ordinator, he didn't say 'no'... or 'bad idea'... which is somewhat heartening. I'm actually going to speak with him, as I have only corresponded via email - to have a mapped out idea of terrain we'll be exploring.
Re. linvillegorge: Similar to your own vehemence, my mates were/are all for a doctor's professional diagnosis. Thing being, I cannot reconcile my differences, w/ the idea of forking out dollars/cents that could be better spent elsewhere. Then again, I know- I know, it's my 'knee'... no laughing matter.. (although when it happened, my mates thought it laughable - then again, scorpion, down a bowl... kind-of-funny-if-no-serious-harm-evidenced).
As for my 'knee' and 'how it is': fine, but for angled movement, SUDDEN, angled movement. It is the inside of my knee that is laced with pain. Is there a 'clicking', yeah... 'stiffness', you betcha... is it debilitating @ this stage... no.
W/ the 'slap-in-the-face' of reality re. doctor visit, I am actually going to 'sack-up' and make one to the local doc. here in Whistler... Before the clinic. I had a heinous accident, many moons ago... not going back to 'vegetable-status'...
Appreciate the REALITY CHECK guys!
