How Did That Happen???

Thin end of the wedge.
Posted on July 8th, 2009 at 10:18 am by lopo1969 and

Re-visited the Orthotics man today to have a wedge removed from the storm-toopers boot.  I was so cocky about it all; I’ve been walking around with just one crutch with no problems.  So I thought “hey what difference can on little wedge make?” Hmmmmm a big bloody difference is what.

I confidently replaced the boot, re-inflated the air bags and stood up un-aided.  Big mistake, there was a very disconcerting shooting pain up the calf and a horrible pulling sensation at my ankle.  My journey to the car was slow and laboured with many stops. 

I’m going back to 2 crutches for a couple of days to let the tendon stretch out and then try single handed again.

Oh and my first physio appointment is booked for August 7th, so hopefully by then the tendon will be fully stretched and ready for more torture.
