Last Friday the consultant told me I could run start running again, albeit slowly. Then my doctor phoned to say as the scan and x-ray showed nothing she wanted me to see an orthopaedic surgeon. Gosh! So I saw this very nice, young (!) surgeon this week who thinks my swollen toes are a result of a stress fracture and he wants me to have an MRI scan.
"Do you run on your toes?" he asks,
" yes but I'm trying to change that". Obviously I haven't managed it.
"Can I run?" I ask.
"No" he says.
What's a girl to do? One consultant says yes and the other says no. At the end of the day I'm a sensible princess and so I'm listening to the surgeon who knows all about toes and feet.
He did say that I have very tight calves. I know. And this can make you more susceptible to stress fractures. I know.
Bottom line is I still can't run, I'm waiting to get an appointment for an MRI scan and I won't be able to do Dozzer's Discombobulater! I'm gutted.
I am still cycling to keep my fitness up but I so miss running.
But I'm a "glass half full" kind of gal and so I know I'll be back running again!
Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy your running.
