I think I told everyone I went over on my ankle on the doorstep of the bungalow I am in waiting for a slope to be put in but that's another story. I think I also said I fell in my bathroom and have had my arm in plaster for 3 weeks now. Well went for MRI last Thursday at Poole general then had to go book an appointment to go back this week hopefully to have cast off. I booked the appointment my boyfriend had driven me but we had to walk to the car so crossed at traffic lights outside the hospital and was just walking along with one crutch in the unplastered hand when all of a sudden my right ankle just went right over again sending me sprawling across the pavement landing on my left hip elbow and hand as well as the agony in the foot that had let me down I just lay there unable to jump up like I used to do I was surrounded by 6 people coming to my aid trying to get me up but I just wanted a few minutes to lie there because I didn't know if my ankle was going to hold me. Eventually I was held up and we went on to the car where I just wanted to die of embarrassment. I was in bed for two days and have been awake all night tonight or last night as its5.48 am now with my ankle and knee. I have laughed about it now but had visions of having to call an ambulance from across the road to take me back in. It has now left me feeling very unsteady the fact my ankle has started just giving way at any time I was wearing flat shoes as I never wear heals the pavement was even so no holes. I have a Drs appointment on Wednesday and will be mentioning it to her as well as the hospital when I go Wednesday morning. Fingers crossed I haven't damage the hand more as it did swell up again around my fingers. Just a silly woman. I need this cast off as I need to be able to stitch to get my mental state back on track . ,my pain levels are currently off the chart which is impacting on everything.
Wishing everyone a relatively pain free day
Hugs to all
