Feel better soon!
(a.k.a. prayers for healing to the non-Harry Potter fan)
are being set your way.[/COLOR]
Ooo I love Harry Potter! :yay: Thanks you guys! It actually feels a little better today, but I’ve got a purple spot on the side of my foot and all around my little toe. I was going to see about the ortho, but I think I’ll wait a few days and see how it goes first.
This stupid boot is so uncomfortable! :hair: At least we got it fitting properly so I can not use the crutches which helps a lot!
I think you might like to take a look at this blog by Marni. She has tips for getting around with crutches.
Yikes, Jack! At least mine isn’t that bad. The boot is a walking boot so it’s okay. My foot is still bruised looking in some spots, but I can walk on with the boot okay. No need for crutches since they said nothing is broken and this boot is like being encased in cement.
But still that cooling machine she mentions sound, cool erm, groovy.
Hope I haven’t adjusted the language to the wrong decade.
Thought I’d share a picture… I’ve graduated to an elastic bandage and flip flops (walking carefully)…surprisingly my foot doesn’t hurt with them whereas it does in a shoe. :?? It doesn’t hurt as much as it looks like it would, but I still can’t bend it too much.
Poor girl! :pout:
Oh no! (made my stomach flip)
It’s been a week now and my foot is still bruised and sore. I can’t wear a shoe other than a flip flop with an elastic bandage. ~sigh~ What a pain. :hair:
Yeah, it takes longer to heal as we get older (grin, duck and run).
But sprains can be a problem at any age. I was 35 when I sprained one ankle really bad and it took about a month to heal up.
I think this is actually more than a sprain. I think I might have a broken toe or possibly since they didn’t “see” a break anywhere it could be a torn ligament or whatever it is. It’s still all bruised around that area of my foot around the toe…down about 2 inches actually from the middle toe or so over to the edge. Then there is a bruised spot about the size of a nickel to a quarter on the side of my foot. My ankle does hurt a bit, but not too bad…only when it’s tweaked a certain way.
Yeah, that’s what happened in my ankle, it was a torn ligament or tendon. It bothered me off and on when I was on it a lot or walking on concrete, but I had acupuncture on it about 10 years ago and it doesn’t bother me at all. You might consider that; even with the bruising, it could help speed up the healing. It may hurt worse for a few days and that’s completely normal, then will start feeling better.
I’ll have to check into that. Thanks for the idea!
I hope your foot gets better soon! I know it’s a pain to deal with.
I think it’s slowly getting better, but I’m still in an elastic bandage. It’s been almost 2 weeks and it’s still bruised, too. Sheesh!
Oh Jan, I’m so sorry to hear about your ankle. I hope that it feels better soon. Be patient with your healing, think of all the extra knitting time you can get in :teehee: :knitting:
Just knit yourself a flesh toned sock!
I actually thought about making flip flop socks because my feet are freezing since I can’t comfortably wear shoes yet. :teehee: Flesh tone sounds good…maybe I could do some fair isle for the toes to perk up my nails, too. :roflhard:
“Fake Pedicure” socks would probably be a great pattern! You’d make a killing selling that pattern on Ravelry!
