That’s what I heard today when I finally went to the doctor about my achy foot.
So, until I get my bone scan I am in this big lug of a boot.
I went to the Ortho On Call doctor today and they took x-rays of my right foot, specifically of the arch and bone on the outside of the foot. After reading about plantar fasciitis (thanks, Kara!), I thought maybe that’s what it was, because that’s something that can affect long distance runners, but nope… apparently I’m a perfect candidate for a stress fracture- white, female, slim, runner, weak bones. Sweet.
I have to schedule a bone scan tomorrow, so hopefully I can get that in this week so I can either a)rule it out and take this 5lb plastic thing off my foot, or b) figure it out and treat it right.
In the meantime, I’m obviously not allowed to run. I am, however, allowed to cycle and swim, so it’s a good thing I actually like cycling. Now all I need are those padded shorts. Anyone in Richmond know where to get a pair?
The fave is very excited I can do some sort of working out so I can find somewhere to place my stress, other than direct it at him 🙂 Hopefully I don’t go too crazy with not getting to run… but, here’s to me being a positive person with a positive outlook!
Send some good thoughts my way, please!!
