Ortho Visit

I met with my orthopedic for my ankle this morning. I saw him for all of 3 minutes I think. 

He had reviewed my x-rays and said yup definitely broken. Although, I was informed that the type of break I have is the kind you want if you’re going to have a break. 

I have a non-displaced fracture of the posterior maleolous on the lateral side. So no cast just the boot and I go back in 4 weeks for some new x-rays and see how it’s coming along. 

So yeah, I’ll be sporting some pretty fancy footwork on my right foot for a while. 

As for the left ankle he said we will look at that one after we get the broken one fixed. Okay, sounds good to me. 

And, now to figure out how to get some exercise in without killing my poor ankles anymore than they already are. The worse part is I was planning on going back to yoga in a few weeks after kickball ended. 

Oh and this whole breaking my ankle thing in the middle of kickball season SUCKS the BIG ONE!!!
