Hi Again, I am now in what I call a 'numpty boot' which is the alternative to having my lower leg potted because of the partial tear to my achilles tendon. I am now 3 weeks post 'fall', if you can call missing the curb edge and going over on your ankle a fall!
However the bruising on my leg is still developing and new bruising still occuring. Currently it extends in patches from around the back of my knee to my toes in various patches of various colours from blue, various shades of red and yellow (I know thats the first ones breaking down).
Can some of this be made worse by the pred? I have managed to drop again from 10 to 9 for the last couple of days as I was doing well on 9, tried for a couple of weeks to drop to 8 and then the 'fall' happend and then that started my shoulders off again, etc etc, so I have been up to 10 again for the last 3 weeks which sorted out the PMR pain pretty quickly.
On the plus side, I was risk assessed for being at work and it was decided that it is safer for me to work from home, which means I can get a lunchtime nap in which really really helps - my hubby cannot understand how much a half hour nap helps - trouble is, im only 49 and am currently feeling much much older!
