Well it's been 2 weeks
Well it's been 2 weeks since I fell and hurt my leg. But it looks much better than it did 2 weeks ago- don't have a current picture, but the bruising is at the nasty yellow point and it red and kinda gross looking now. The swelling is also better, I actually have an ankle most days, but I still can't fit my foot into shoes- I can comfortably wear 1 pair of slippers, not real cool to wear out into public (although they are what I wore home on the plane, to the ED and to my last doc appt). Last night was my hubby's businesses open house so I didn't want to wear slippers there, which then the parents took us out to dinner afterwards, so I am glad I wasn't wearing them- I shoved my foot into a pair of crocs- that was so much fun- it has been 2 weeks already WTF- the ED says it isn't broken, there isn't a clot, it isn't even sprained- so why is it still so darn painful, swollen, why can't I bare full weight or have anyone touch it in certain places with crying?! Yes I admit it I am a baby! I am still using one crutch to get around most of the time- yes I know I should probably be re-seen but after the 7 hour nightmare I had in the ED I just don't want to deal with it anymore- I am banking on the stupid nurse philosophy of 'just ignore it and it will go away'. I believe I have said this before and if any particular future nurses are listening you might want to learn this phrase, but hopefully you won't have to use it as often as I have :blush: 'do as I say, NOT as I do.'
