Dept. of Life in the Circus

 ... is a Never-Ending DEElite

So the podiatrist says it is indeed mostly likely a stress fracture: "We'll treat it like one until I'm proven otherwise." That would happen only if the MRI I had on the foot last night does the proving. She pointed out that the X-ray my GP ordered wouldn't have ID'd any stress fracture anyway, because it was taken only 15 days after the pain started, and apparently stress fractures don't show on X-ray film for at least 21 days. So I learned a new thing. 

And therefore?

Fashion Forward Footwear. Yay. (Or actually, YAY!! At least I've probably got something that can be dealt with. I love known quantities!)

What is it with these boots? S ended up having wear one after she injured herself slipping in a parking lot.

I gather that they're easier to use as an immobilization tool than old-style casts, especially for things from sprains to minor fractures, which is what you want to keep a stress fracture as.

It's not so bad, except at the end of the day. I'm looking forward to getting it off now, for instance.

Oh, you poor thing. I cannot imagine the misery of having to wear a contraption like that in July. Also interesting info about stress fractures not showing up in x-rays for 21 days. That makes me LOL. Do stress fractures have a statute of limitations or something? ; ) Makes me glad I didn't bother going to a hospital when I wrenched my foot in Bennington.

Thanks for the good wishes! It's less the heat than the rubbing against my shins, actually. And I am so sorry I didn't go to a doctor immediately with this; I could have saved myself almost a month of pain, I think.

Very stylish. *nods*

I, too, am hoping for that outcome. I really hate the possibility of having another source of chronic, low-level pain.

BOOT! I had one of those when I fractured my foot!

And it's totally Fashion Forward Footwear - the nurse who fitted me with mine told me David Beckham had one at some point. You're the cutting edge.

Bless, honey. Stress fractures can happen anytime...and they are DEFINITELY hard to detect, much less treat! But they do heal when given proper medical attention - so yay for your doctor for catching that!

*HUGS*

Ugh, no. Take care! ♥ Well, indeed, at least it's something that can be treated properly!
