Footsteps

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.

  1. I would hope for the doc’s estimate and prepare for the pt’s. also remember, the doc sees healed as the day that you no longer need him… a pt sees healed as the day you can resume all activities to where you were before the injury… no adnormal swelling, or anything of the sort… or at least that has been my experiance… good luck…

    • @Nox Serva Totally! I double checked withthe doctor, and he says it will be safe to jump and even jog on my foot three weeks post op! :) We’re hoping it works out that way, but planning on it not to, just in case.

  2. Huge Hugs Kitty! i am actually really happy to hear you’re going ahead with the surgery! i would also agree with Nox Serva with the doc’s definition of “healed” but either way, it sounds like you have a wonderful plan and things well in hand. i am just so excited to know you’ll be back up and on all fours SOON! <3

    • @Master Dream’s Precious Treasure Thanks Hon. I’m really twitchy and nervous abour the surgery (I’ve never had any kind of surgery before), but I know that it’s the right thing. I can walk around now, but not for long, and I am sick of sitting on the sidelines of my own life. :/ I appreciate your well wishes! :)

  3. Huge hugs for you, Kitty.

  4. You are a brave kitty

  5. I hope it goes well! Surgery is definitely going to help. When nervous, just think of all the fun and fun kinky things you will be able to do again without accommodating for the boot or hurt foot. Stay brave! *big hug*

    • Thanks @Winterseve. I’m definitely trying to remind myself that this is the best plan of action. I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines of my own life. I’m so ready to be done with this all, for sure! :)

  6. Sending you some big hugs for courage, and many positive healing thoughts!! You will get through this and I believe you are making the right decision.
