As you can see (sorry for the nasty pictures) My foot is still swollen and black and blue. The confusing part about this all is, the injury is in my calf!
All this waiting, leaves an impatient girl agitated. I am not a patient person by nature, I always joke that this is why I ran so fast I have no patience. And it is to an extent true.
But I have to learn how to be patient :( It seems the hardest thing I have had to do yet.And the worst part, the doctor says no cardio still. I asked nicely if I could even maybe swim or start doing something when I saw him and he just said no we need to wait a lil while longer :( That was depressing!
I did get fitted with a boot, so the good news is I can now bend my knee and take it off to shower without needing someone around to wrap me back up!
Probably for me the most frustrating part of this injury is the pain. My calf constantly throbs all day unless I take the pain medicine and keep it elevated. I hate the feeling of being on the pain medicine so I try not to take it so much. And then the whole, it is my right leg so I cannot drive. That part gets me the most down. I feel like a prisoner here in my house.
One day at a time is all I can do right now. I am just so bored.
