Hopefully the last time you will have to hear about it

I saw my new dr. this morning. I am impressed! I did not have to wait, they took me right back, I saw his PA then he came in. Very nice and professional. So if you need a good foot/ankle specialist, let me know.

He moved my feet around, looked at my MRI and said.....we have to start from square one....Me being me, stopped him said no we don't. I have been running 5-7 miles a week for about 3 weeks and I think we should stay at that. I know that I am diffecult but come on really.....He gave me steriod to take for 6 days, an anti-inflammatory to take after that, also using anti-inflammatory cream on the foot 4 times a day along with physical therapy 3 times a week for 2 weeks. Said I should be good as new by the time we are done with all this. I do have to get orthotics for my shoes but doesn't every runner we know have those?

Other than all that, I am good for now and if all that doesn't work then I will have to have surgery but he thinks since I am able to run right now I should do just fine.

Great news!!!!! Does that mean we have to run in the rain tonight?

Is all this from tripping over the dog or were there other latent problems that the trip just aggrevated and brought to the forefront?

Well I was told by Dr. Bert and now this guy that I have weak ankles, which leads to poor feet. They should not pop and move around the way they do. Hopefully PT will strengthen them... OH and for all of us who love to run on sand...bad,very very bad. He thinks the trail race might of started some of it, the dog didn't help and then running at the trail again was a very poor decision on my part. So the short answer to that Dena, is no not just the dog. Good for Daisy, who by the way is becoming my best friend! It is hilarious!
