I think I've said before: "Well, fudge."

A visit to the ortho reveals a ruptured plantar fascia.

Today's parting gifts are a walking boot and a scheduled follow-up in a month or so.

Grrr.




God bless America.

Now that you have the boot on, bourbon, then try to walk!

Told you to see a doc. I did not even charge like the Teledoc. Engineers are always stubborn about this stuff. Glad you got the walking boot. This kind of stuff most certainly can get worse without proper diagnosis and treatment.

Michael: yes, I've been stubborn for a few days. Thank you for prodding me to see the doc.

Johnny: it's 1792 night. Wink

Once the dog comes in, I'll be foot-on-the-back-of-the-couch for the night.




God bless America.

Hope you heal quickly! (No pun intended).

One thing to consider when you are walking (hobbling) around with the boot on, is to wear a shoe or boot on the "good" foot that has a sole about the same height as the boot. Having 2 different height soles can put your hips off & give you hip/back issues in addition to the foot issue.

True. I figure once this is settled, I'll end up visiting the chiropractor too.




God bless America.

Depends on how bad you injured it. I fell awkwardly off my surfboard at first street VA Beach. It was a very low tide and I hit my heel HARD on a rock or shell in the sandbar. I thought I broke my heel because it took a loooooooooooooooooong time to heal up. It was probably 7 months easy before it began to feel normal again. I was limping around for a long time. I probably should have gone to a doctor but I figured there isn’t much you can do for a busted heel other than give to time and rest as much as you can.

That was my mindset a few days ago, too. Thanks to ZSMichael and a couple of the ladies at work, I finally relented and sought better opinions than my own.

I'm no fan of this danged boot at all, but it's probably better than the long-term effects of not getting it checked on.




God bless America.
