Comminuted Fracture

And the saga continues.....

I interpreted the phone message as a small break on the tip of my toe. Here is the diagnosis:


Sounded a bit more scary so I looked up comminuted fracture to discover this isn't a little break but must involve 3 separate pieces of bone. And those minimally displaced fragments referenced above...I was told it was a stable break. Hmmmm......

  4. Yeah that is getting truly confusing. Love it when the medical world speaks three different languages without checking with themselves on what they are saying in what language - "confusion, obfuscation or literal obliteration".

    Sorry you cannot run as it seems to be a settling point in your world. A little time (I know a challenge) and a little TLC (when do we have time for that - right?) and soon you will be able to. Sending karma and prayers your way my friend.

  6. So sorry to hear about your toe! I hope the slippers make if feel better and that the tape wrapping works wonders to get you back to running shape before too long! Enjoy your 3 day weekend!

  7. :( Sad to hear about the toe. How long does it take to heal? Did they at least tell you that. You could have a countdown to running! I'll also be praying for a quick recovery for you too.

  9. Thanks for the love and well wishes. I have no news on how long they think it will take to heal. I need to go in for a follow-up x-ray and want to have a sit down with my doctor to discuss. It was scheduled for 11/8 by one nurse but then I had a call that said the x-ray should be the week of thanksgiving or after. I really want to have it before I go to TX so I need to call and see what they really want.....
