Went back to the Podiatrist today for my post physical therapy follow up. Explained what was going on with the NEW pain near my ankle on the outside edge and her ordered an x-ray. X-rays taken from three different angles, but they did not show anything.
Still, and because the area is so extremely painful even to the lightest touch, he suspects a stress fracture and ordered a bone scan; which he does not have the equipment for. So the receptionist calls the hospital to schedule the bone scan while the doctor copies the x-rays to a CD for me to take with me. THURSDAY was the soonest opening they had!!! AARGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!! I was really HOPING for some relief today. This pain is just sucking the life out of me!
After she gets off the phone from scheduling the bone scan with the small local hospital, I ask if she thinks I could get in sooner at a bigger hospital. She is a dear and makes the call and I now have an appt for the bone scan tomorrow. I think her for the extra work of getting me the earlier appt and limp away. Off to do a little grocery shopping before I go home to take a nap. Sleeping is the ONLY time I am not in pain.
So after the bone scan I WAIT some more for the results to be sent to the podiatrist and for them to call me for a return appointment. I am NOT happy right now. sigh.
Here are a few pictures of some recent finds:
