Ankle Injury Update: Part Five

On Monday, I had my follow-up to my follow-up appointment with the orthopedic department.  After another examination of my ankle and a conference between the nurse practitioner and the orthopedic physician we all agreed on several things.

1. I would move from the boot to an ankle brace (they started worrying about me getting blood clots)
2. I need to start physical therapy
3. I need to get an MRI (to rule out a high ankle sprain and/or damage to my Achilles)
4. I need to follow-up with the podiatry department


I was given an ankle brace:

I started physical therapy on Monday (after my orthopedic appointment) and I am going twice a week.  The physical therapist applied the tape to provide additional support after my session.  I had to wear it for 24 hours.

My MRI is scheduled for Friday.

I meet with podiatry next Friday.

I am hoping for 6-8 weeks of physical therapy and then I am hoping to get into the pool to start running therapy after that.  We shall see how it goes and just keep hoping and praying for the best.

Happy Wednesday!
