Day to Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — niccig13 at 6:44 pm on Tuesday, August 9, 2011

So, I am slowly, kind of slowly getting back into routine and it’s going to be rough. At the end of the day I have a lot of heel pain and also a lot of pain in the other heel. I dealt with plantar fascitis in the other heel before I ruptured my left achilles. So now both feet are a hot mess. I feel like an old person. I’m online researching cute orthopedic shoes and those don’t exist. I need to take it easy and transition slowly. I am working on heel raises. My scar looks ugly. It’s raised. I try to massage it as often as possible. I’m hoping it flattens out. I guess time will tell. OK I’m done complaining. I’m doing the best I can :)

Most scars take a while to go down but some people are will suffer from what is called a keloid scar which is raised. You won’t know for a couple of years but if you end up with a raised scar then there are some options to fix them if it bothers you. You would need to see a qualified plastic surgeon who may suggest a series of injections or laser. The injections are less effective than the laser and the laser will remove some pigment as well as scar but the results are really good. I had this done for my daughter with great success and it was not overly expensive.

ok, I saw you were resesrching cute ortho shoes. If you find some, let me know. I’m a high heel conisseuer - prob around 40 pairs - i know its out of control and I’ve had to accept the fact that I now need to wear flats. I did something I said I would never do - I bought crocs - but I bought ones that were stylish and look like ballet flats. Haven’t come in yet but hope they work. Good luck.

I have been using silicone scar tape recommended to me at the medical supply store, called Mepiform. My scar was also raised, but it’s flattened completely now and starting to fade at 14 weeks. I posted photos on my blog at 7 weeks. You can see even then what an improvement I had. And yes, Crocs feel good … they do have stylish ones!

Thanks for all the advice. I was thinking Crocs would be too flat but I actually have some that I will try. I am also going to look into DANSKO clogs. I have a less expensive pair called BOC they have them at DSW. I was actually there last weekend and there were a couple pairs that weren’t too bad. All casual shoes not high heels! There was a pair of sporty tennis shoes called Privo by Clarks that were pretty comfy. I didn’t buy yet but I am going to. The true test is how you feel when then day is done.

This appeared in the 2012-13 season jersey to commemorate the club’s glorious past record, the appearance of the jersey is more innovative and eye-catching.
