Sports Related Injury: Update II [Mar. 6th, 2013|06:27 am]

So, on Monday I went back to the doctors and sat around in a waiting room filled with people in walkers for a few hours. They sorted out the left and right sides of my body and I got into the x-ray room where a very pleasant woman showed me the fancy wireless digital technology that let xrays be beamed from the receptive plate right to a computer (but apparently does not have the ability to email images -- they burn them to CD). The whole procedure, including the x-ray camera chit-chat took 90 seconds.

So, hopefully my doctor is looking at my x-rays and figuring out what is wrong. In the meantime, she presciently put me in the que for an MRI and visit to a foot ankle specialist -- which is good because the swelling has not gone down after five days on anti-inflammatories.

That is all the news from Lake Woebegon.

Ouch, Kyle, I hope it isn't broken. Five days! Is it bruised? Seeing a specialist sounds like a good idea.

How frustrating. I hope you are not in pain.

I hope whatever it is comes up in the X-Rays--MRI's are so expensive!!!! I had one for my Derby Related Injury--and whatever was wrong with my knee only was fixed by physical therapy, the MRI didn't show anything. Keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed for you that it isn't too serious.

I am joining you on the isle of pain. Whilst playing a warm up game with a class this evening, I took a step forward, rolled my ankle and put 15 st. of Kian through it.

Nothing broken, but a really bad sprain. Bed/sofa service for the next few days, no sport for a month and painkillers that make me see imaginary mice at the end of the bed.
