I fractured The Bone of The Right Foot.
I was confined to wearing The Semi-Cast.
And The Crutches.
The Semi-Cast didn’t help any.
It was upgraded to The Full Cast.
I went to The Specialist Clinic at The General Hospital for The Follow-Up.
Had The Right Foot x-rayed again.
The Bone was not fully connected yet, but it has returned to the correct “lane”.
So The Doc said I didn’t need The Full Cast anymore.
“I don’t? For real? So I can walk now?”-The Excited Me
“Yes. Just walk with The Heels and gradually The Right Foot. The Bone is already in the correct “lane” so it should heal by itself. It will fully heal in another 6 weeks.”
“So I can walk?” – still in happy disbelief.
“Can I drive?”
“Can I run?”
“No. Not yet. Even after 6 weeks, The Bone would “just” had recovered so maybe you have to wait a little longer before you can start running. So no running and jumping.”
So much for futsal then…
“Can I wear high heels?”
There goes the stilletos…
After I was clear on what I could and could not do, The Doc gave me some DIY exercises to get The Right Foot mobile again…
Hell yea, here begins The Painful Walk To Recovery:
The Right Foot has been “static” for 6 weeks, so I had to re-learn the “art of walking”.
The Skin on The Right Foot, I feel, is DEAD because it hadn’t “breathed” for the past six weeks…so moving The Right Foot feels like all the tight, dead and dry skin were going to be torn off the flesh…
And did I mention that The Right Foot is swollen???
Swollen!!! Why is that??? (Seriously, can anyone please shed some light on this whole after-cast effect?)
So yea…The Walk is not an easy one.
But I am determined.
At least now I don’t have The Full Cast and The Crutches to deal with.
And I miss The Right Foot…
It feels good to be “whole” again…
Although The Right Foot looks horrid…
My poor poor foot…
P/S – To “celebrate” my being “whole” again, I gave this blog a facelift – and it’s not “just” the background either. (Hover around and you might notice something…) So, how do you like The Blog??? ;p
