I went and saw the sports physician today, to check out and discuss the MRI slides. The good news is there's nothing obviously wrong with my left knee, the bad news is there isn't anything obviously wrong with my left knee.

If there was an issue on the MRI, then I'd have something to work to fix. The only thing that can be drawn from the $300 worth of scans is an area at the top of my fibula that wouldn't really classify as a stress reaction (a precursor to a stress fracture), but as it correlates with the area of pain, it's what the doc is concentrating on. In the pic below it's the tiny whitish lines on the top left of the lower bone.

So, the treatment is continued reduced load (5-10 hour weeks on the bike).

He also wants to run some blood tests to see if there's anything going on that may have caused a my body to be more susceptible to bone damage. One theory is I might not be eating enough, but I'm fairly confident I've got pure food volume covered.
