Hi my names Síobhan, It all started 2months ago I missed a step and received a foot fracture. For the 1st 3-4 weeks they said it was a sprain and I went for an MRI which then showed up as 2fractures. Then a week later I got my CT scan results and it was one fracture, which then I was put in a cast that was fitted too tight. I went to Sydney a week later and on the plane I didn't feel well and as soon as I got of I had a pain in my right calf. I went to hospital and it turned out to be a blood clot :((
This was 2weeks ago now but since I returned to Melbourne I have not received much support and don't know what to do. I am on warfarin and have been getting tests every 2/3 with the hospital and my new doctors surgery which haven't been helpful at all. I have all these questions and know one to ask. If anyone can help here it would be much appreciated. I resisted googling things since last week because it was so scary some of things I discovered.
I joined here today having read alot of stories which I can relate to. Because of the fracture still healing I don't know how much I should be exercising etc and in what way? Th pain has came back after a week without and it is really stressful. I also don't know when it is ok to go back to school as I'm a teacher?
