I've been booted


Thursday, I rolled my ankle. I have done that 1 million times before. About every 6 months I roll it so bad it hurts for several days. I woke up Friday and I was still in pain, so I decided to go to the doctor. The last time I went to the doctor for my ankle, I was in high school.  We decided it was best to get an x-ray and see what the damage was or if there was any. 

Findings:
  • Bone fragment along the inferior tip of the medial malleolus, this appears to be old trauma, however in the setting of new trauma, an acute fracture component is not excluded.
  • Minimal plantar and posterior calcaneal spurring is observed.
  • Mild soft tissue swelling and join effusion may be present.
I was sad, so I ate pie. Yummy, Dutch apple pie. Then I got over it and sat down and figured out how I am going to still workout, until I see the Orthopedic doctor. This week should be interesting, to say the least.  For now, I make stupid boot jokes, take it off to drive as it is my right foot and overall have a pity party.


Have you ever been booted?

  1. I have been booted before for a bone spur on the top of my foot. That boot was irritating but it helped. Hope you get better soon!
