Ankle Update – Ankle and tendon problems
Turns out my ankle is pretty serious with ankle and tendon problems ago go.
I had an MRI scan some weeks back and I found from my wonderful doctor that I’ve tore one tendon and another has completely detached.
I may need surgery, I may never run again… I treat it as a big laugh when I went to see my doctor, sort of “I told you it hurt” etc… but it’s not funny. I look enviously on runners and joggers now and I realise what I could lose. I really hope that it’ll sort itself out or that with some work and/or surgery it’ll get better.
My bro-in-law who’s a medic said that a tendon break is more serious than a bone break. I believe him now, a bone would have knit by now and I’d be on the road to recovery.
A broken tendon, well does that need to be reattached, I’m just not sure what happens next.
Actually I just checked out the official document – see below – and it’s ligament damage not tendon. Still what an arse…
