Best foot forward
Sunday, September 13, 2009
Ever since I started dancing again my progress has been slowed by problems with my feet. I have bunions with bone spurs growing on both big toes, plus the irritation is causing something called sesamoiditis. In everyday life, the pain is not debilitating but it's bad enough to keep me from progressing in my ballet classes. I can't go on releve without a lot of pain so I'm going to have minor surgery some time soon to correct this. I wanted to avoid going under the knife, because 1) I'm a diabetic and diabetes and foot surgery are not very compatible and 2) I just had major surgery three months ago and I didn't want to put my body through that again. But if I can't dance, all this is for naught. So I'm going to take the plunge. I'll keep you guys informed of what happens.
