A lil Nervous :-/

Posted at 5:36 pm under Uncategorized

So tomorrow I’m having my MRI and Ultrasound on my leg. I must say I am nervous, I feel like a little kid… I think I am more nervous of the outcome rather than the procedure. I am hoping for the best, you guys wish me luck… looks like I need a lot of it now days!
I hope all you guys are recovering and Healing well :o)

    I am curious, too…hopefully, it was good news, maybe just a bad sprain? Please let us know…I remember when I had my MRI done as well and I know that nervous feeling. It’s like it was yesterday! MM

    I’m hoping the damage is not major.. Tomorrow @ 9am I get my results.. I’m nervous but I am ready to deal with it!.. I am 2 weeks away from my Vacation to Puerto Rico and I need to know the damage so that I will not strain my leg trying to walk so much… Thanks for the good luck guys! :O)

    If the Thompson test shows your toe doesn’t jump when your calf is squeezed, and if your early steps up a stairway were done with your foot angled sharply so you could put your “bad” heel on each step (instead of hanging out over the air like a normal person), then you’ve got a torn AT, according to me and at least two sports-med surgeons I’ve consulted. Are those two “tests” true for you?

    Several bloggers here have posted notices indicating high levels of inaccuracy in both of those diagnostic tests for ATR diagnosis (and Xrays are much worse!). At best, the accuracy is very dependent on the skill of the operator and interpreter.

    I was sent for an ultrasound to confirm my first ATR (8 yrs ago). This time, the sports-med doc I saw first (who sent me to a surgeon) wrote me a prescription for an ultrasound in case anybody wanted one, but he thought it was unnecessary. The surgeon agreed, and slapped me in a boot.

    When I had 3 PRP injections, over the next couple of weeks, they did ultrasound to help “aim” the injections, and of course, they incidentally got a blurry look at the tendon. One time I didn’t ask and they didn’t tell, so I assume it looked like what they were expecting (and what we’d all diagnosed) which was a total tear. The second time, they said it looked like a partial tear. The third time, they said it looked like a series of partial tears at different locations. (WTF?) If it walks and quacks like a duck. . . And if it cripples you like a full ATR, and responds well to the proven treatment for a full ATR. . .
