Just wanted to throw out a quick update on my injury and the road to recovery. Last week, Alisha, my physical therapist asked me to take a complete week off from all activity and we would reevaluate on Wednesday. During my rest I put myself on an ibuprofen regimen and a icing routine. Slowly throughout the week the pain started to subside and I was starting to get a positive feeling that this may be all I needed, that is till Wednesday.
I woke up Wednesday and the pain and aching had returned in full force and believe it or not all I could do was smile, shake my head and laugh. I sent Alisha an email letting her know of my progress and regress for the week. She felt it was time to take it to the next level and see a specialist. I really had no idea what to do or who to see on, so Alisha recommended a doctor that is top notch in his field here in Toledo. Alisha has been so great through my previous injury recovery and now this situation that I fully trust her opinion and who she recommends I see. She got me his contact info and I called for an appointment. This coming Wednesday I'll be having my initial evaluation and an x-ray, so hopefully I'll have an answer to my problem or at the very least have it narrowed down to a short list of possible issues.
If you wonder how I am able to keep my spirits up during this situation, well its been a little rough but Jedi has been keeping me entertained!
I am anxious to see what he has to say, but I fear that this my drag on for a couple of weeks before, one, I have a diagnosis, and two, know if I have to have surgery or not. So for now, the goal is to get healthy enough to run again, while I hope and pray that I'll be able to run the Detroit Marathon in three and a half months!
