ankle update

Thursday, September 13, 2012

OK so we all know my ankle is permanently unstable... my arthritis is very bad!
No good news - I have to work through the pain and cramps... I expressed to the dr - this is a debilitating pain - there is NO working through it! It is like a charlie-horse where there are NO muscles... I understand they cannot compare my issues with someone else... no one else in the entire world has my ankle issues.... no one!

My ankle was broken in three different places and did not heal right. The bone and tendon that were detached were detached for three years - so the dr is stumped on what to do or where to go! grrrrr! I understand there is only so much he can undersand and only so much medically that he can do...I want further tests - an MRI or cat scan..blood work during the episode..maybe it is a lack of some nutrient... I am frustrated.

I know I have to live with this for the rest of my life... I choose to live in pain and not become HOOKED on pain meds... but this I do not choose - it completely IMPAIRS me. I cannot do anything the pain is unbearable - I tend to scream as the cramp clamps down and does not let go... I have to crawl from upstairs to get ice.

I have to function I am back to classes in three weeks...ugh!

I am praying for God's amazing Grace.

Jean
