Thanks, Debbra. You're always so helpful. The x-rays didn't show any damage and their is a coinciding of the increased exercise and the pain. So I do think they're related. I do ice afterward and honestly, the distance feels easy to me since cycling has been my thing for decades. I may have torqued it somehow even with gentle exercise. They put me back on tramadol as needed and I'm going back to my PT exercises for strengthening as well. It's so disheartening to have made such progress and then have a set back. I was always one to "go hard" so I think I'm going to have to temper my expectations. At least another surgery is ruled out- that was my biggest freak out!! Thank you again!

@amytro I am not nearly at your level of exercise/biking but I too tend to overdo when I first resume exercise. I think I can go full-steam ahead and then pay for it the next day. I hope to get back to my health club this week and resume exercise (after sitting out from a fracture) but I will have to very consciously limit what I do. It feels good when I am doing it, it's just afterward that it hurts.

Have a great vacation and don't overdo! You don't mention where you are but if you are in an area with fall foliage it will be a beautiful time for biking.
