My Stupid Fucking Ankle (Update)

Still hurts a fair bit. Dr. Ryan has informed me that he is still not sure if it will work  (“well, Vanessa, I just don’t know what to say about this…”) I told him that if I have to have more surgery I’d rather have it sooner rather than later and was informed that he’s not that pessimistic. It is…..frustrating. I can swim (though I haven’t yet) and bike (which I have done, and which feels okay for awhile) but no running, jumping, anything even remotely high impact. I started PT and it’s going okay, though my ankle hurts afterwords. My other ankle has been throbbing a bit as well, and the heel spur in that foot has kicked up like whoa–despite the cortisone shot I finally talked Dr. Ryan into giving me. I’m seeing a foot and ankle specialist at Hopkins in a couple weeks and I’m really, really, REALLY hoping he has some answers. I wonder if there’s an MRI or something that might show if this damn thing holds. I’m really frustrating by barely being able to exercise. Since I couldn’t at ALL for eight weeks I’ve definitely gained weight (okay, so there were some times when I felt rather defeatist about the whole thing and just ate cookie dough…) but anyway. I am frustrated. Really, really, really frustrated.

The semester is almost over and I haven’t been able to do any gymnastics practically since it started.

 

Grr.
