I posted on her about a week ago about a possible stress fracture and getting a bone scan. Well, I had the scan, and yes indeed, I have not one, but two fractures! One is in my fourth metatarsal and one is in my heel.
I have a question though, for anyone who has ever been through this...
My doctor wanted to do nothing but rest it and dope me up with tylenol3!!! I am alone with three young children. That is NOT gonna happen! Has any one ever heard of the do nothing approach? I couldn't believe it. Won't they just get worse? I don't know if this is typical for this doctor or not, but I have a feeling it might have something to do with me not having insurance. I am pretty sure they can't do that though. Why do the bone scan in the first place if you still aren't gonna do anything?
Needless to say, I went out and got a boot on my own because I don't have three months to sit around and do nothing and to be all drugged up.I can't imagine it will do anything but help it heal. It certainly can't hurt it!
