Week Seven(7)

Although I felt happy after my consultation with Mr Kriss it is only on reflection that I realise that the outcome isn’t great. Mr Kriss is puzzled by my pain. He poked and prodded and and said that the position of my foot is much better. I told him how I have pins and needles in my second toe if I touch the middle of my ankle. He went to the x-ray department with me to make sure the angle was perfect so he could get an accurate view of the screw (all the technicians were flushed with with excitement ‘we never get consultants in here!’). He looked at the x-rays with me and the stent appeared to exactly where it should be. He is sending my x-rays to some mates in the business who do Hyprocures, for their opinions and I have been sent off to do foot exercises and to do my left hand crutch when walking any distance. i am to contact him in ten days time to give him an update and find out what his mates had to say.I am supposed to see him in a month when if the pain is no better he will give me a shot of cortisone.

I suppose the question is how long do I keep bearing the pain (and if the cortisone works is it just a temporary fix and then the pain returns?) When do I say I have had enough? And will my foot really return to the way it was or will this pain remain even if the stent is removed  because something in my foot has been damaged?

    • Hope all is going well for your daughter – such an unpleasant thing to happen at an early age. I’m sure that with a stent – she may be back into the social whirl again! Update from suffering husband uploaded – all good!
