Well hi guys, I haven’t been on in a while. I was doing pretty good. At my next to last PT while on the recumbant bike I felt a little pop but not like the pop I felt when I initially tore it on xmas day 2007. My PT thought maybe it was just scar tissue. So anyway, we just kept on with the program. I had already been released by my Dr. anyway.
I also had joined American Family and was doing a program there that including a little treadmill and basic machines that protected my back and also guarded my achilles as well. Well after using the treadmill a couple of times it really made my achilles tender and I knew I couldn’t do a lot of walking around I finally made an appt w/ the surgeon again. This whole process actually took about a month and a half I guess.
So I just saw him last week and he seems to think its the scar tissue that has a tear and prescribed me nitroglycerin cream that I apply to the inflammed area for 12 hrs and then wash off and then I go back and see him in a month. I told him I am NOT HAVING SURGERY AGAIN and he’s like “why, you did so well” and I said its because of the confinement man. Having to depend on someone else to take care of you and stuff. Also, we did discuss that I walked w/o the boot some before I was supposed to around the house flat footed (I demonstrated), he rolled his eyes and said well maybe you didn’t do so well and laughed and said no that wouldn’t affect scar tissue honey.
So, anyway, that’s where I am now. I’m not sure what’s going to happen. I’m going to try to research online about different options. I really don’t want to be cut on. I can’t handle being flat on my back again and I don’t think my husband can deal w/ it either. Especially now, he has a herniated disc.
If anyone has any ideas, that would be great.
