~ I'm falling apart ~

Posted by @amberpep, Aug 17, 2012

Well, I guess not really, but it feels like it. I had a RTKR a year ago and it’s done well except for a small area on the right side of my knee which lacks feeling. That’s the same spot that still hurts, especially when it’s going to rain. About 3 weeks ago I was walking my dog and somehow my left foot slipped off the curb and sort of rolled over……. hurt like crazy, but it eventually subsided. Week #2 it hurt more and I wrapped it, thinking a sprain or strain. I went to visit a friend out of state this week – week #3, and by the time I got home I couldn’t put any weight on it. Finally that afternoon I called my Orthopedist and saw him yesterday. Turns out I broke a bone in my foot …. one on the outside of the left foot that he said is a very common bone for people to break. He was NOT happy that I waited 3 weeks to come in. He put me in a tall cami-walker and told me not to drive til Monday. I go back to see him next Thurs. With this break on my left foot, my right knee is very unhappy …. it hurts and aches, and so now both sides hurt. Sigh ……………..
