I just got back from an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon not too long ago. My appointment was at 10:45am and they wanted me to be there at 10:15. We arrived at 10:10. and guess when I was called back....11:30! Then I had to wait another 30 min before even being seen! Anyways, they wanted me to bring my X-rays from the ER, so yesterday my husband picked them up. When he brought them home I decided to take a look. I was not happy with how they were taken. The X-ray was of my calf and the very top of my ankle. I told them to make sure they get the top of my foot as well, since it was hurting pretty bad.
Well, when the Dr came in I told him this, so he ordered more X-rays. A nurse came in and got them all ready for the Dr to view. After waiting another 20 min he comes in and takes a look at my foot, tries moving it and pokes it in a few places . He then takes a look at the X-rays and says there is a stress fracture right below the bottom of my ankle at the very top of my foot also that it's extremely inflamed. He says he wants an MRI done on it also and said it usually takes 6-12 weeks to completely heal. I wanted to cry! What about my workouts?! I was able to get to a scale this morning and saw I gained 5 lbs! This just isn't right! He placed a big boot on me and says we might have to go for a regular cast depending on the results of the MRI. I will continue to keep you all updated!!!
