E.o.t.T.: SidelinedMay 31, 2011
I really dislike not having definitive answers. The x-ray showed nothing noticeable with the bones of my foot so they are ruling out dislocation and major fracture. I am assuming because they did not mention arthritis, etc., they are also ruling out gout and arthritis. At this point they are calling it a “soft tissue” problem.
I am not allowed to do impact exercises for 2-4 weeks. This includes the running, pushing the prowler sled, and lunges. If I don’t take it easy and let the foot heal, I could end up in a cast for 4-6 weeks to force me to let it heal.
I am supposed to continue with ibuprofen, ice it for 20 minutes several times a day, and of course avoid the impact exercises.
I am not going to be allowed to cheat on the Torturer’s diet at all over the next few weeks. This had to come at a time where I just put back on the 4 pounds I lost. Great.
And on another note… this personally worries me. I had a doctor who developed soft tissue cancer while I was pregnant with T2. I was told if the pain doesn’t get better in two weeks to call a orthopedist to get an evaluation and possibly an MRI to look for a hidden stress fracture.
As much as I complain about torture and the running… I’d really rather be doing it than sidelined and stressed. 😦
