Well it seems when we get together during the next 6 weeks I will be sporting a new fashion accessory.
I have a tendency to develop tendonitis because of the Cerebral Palsy and the way I walk. Over the years I have learned how to treat myself and do pretty good on my own. I own the boot the docs love to put me in and I know to take Advil for the swelling.
In August (yes I said August) when I traveling with Mike on business trips I felt like the tendonitis was going to flair up again. So I started my normal course of treatment.... boot, Advil, rest, & elevation. None of my normal treatment options were working and the tendon was getting worse.
I went to the Orthopedic doctor today and after a pretty long conversation concerning "regular" treatment and "CP" treatment we opted to try using a real cast to hold my foot into position and to try and let the tendon heal for a bit.
So I will go in every two weeks to have the cast removed - take x-rays - and do an evaluation to see how things are doing. I can be casted up to 6 weeks. If that does not work I may be looking at surgery to repair where the tendon attaches to the bone on the back of my heel.
Since getting casted, by tendon pain has gone and now I am just dealing with my leg / foot being angry for getting put in an unnatural position and being forced to stay there.
All CTMH events are still on.
I am still mobile just give me extra time to get to the door because I am a slow poke but I am not in pain.
It looks worse than it is. I promise!
I hope to see you this weekend for Crop Night
