Well, I went back to see the specialist about my foot, the day of Thunder actually, pretty early in the morning though. That tiny little bone chip I got back in March? Yeah, it’s not healing. Five months after injury I have a friggin’ non union. What are my options:
Option 1: I can keep going to way I am, and there is a small chance in about a year that it might heal.
Option 2: I can cry “uncle” and just get some fucking surgery done. Much though surgery scares me (even in its minor forms), my doctor says I should be recovered about three weeks after surgery.
Yeah, Master and me thought option two sounded better too. So, in the meantime I’m waiting on insurance approval, and I really don’t have any clue at all when the surgery itself will take place, but I’m sure I’ll post about it here when it does. Master and me went to Physical Therapy, and the Physical Therapist tells us that he thinks three weeks would be a miracle, and I probably won’t be back to “normal” for six months. Now we’re not sure who to believe, but either way, I’m sick and tired of sitting on the sidelines due to this incredibly stupid injury that I sustained several months ago. I’m ready to fix this and be done with it, and I know Master feels the same way (or else I wouldn’t be getting the surgery).
So, that’s where I am at right now. I can walk, for sure, but I just limp heavily if I’m walking for more than an hour and my foot swells like mad. Can I live like this? Sure, but not as well as I did before the injury. I’m looking forward to having this whole ugly mess behind me.
NOTE: I got a call back from the doctor, who confirms that the healing time will be three weeks. He says that the day of surgery I can bear weight on my foot, and then as soon as my stitches come out (three weeks) I’ll be able to run right away! Now I’m excited! Though.. Still a bit nervous.
