08/24/2014 Back pain.

Posted by dahman on August 24, 2014 at 8:39am 0 Comments

Small setback: my lower back is painful. The root cause: my new workout combined with marathon sessions of lounging in a recliner. Now my most comfortable chair is a straight back kitchen chair with minimal padding. Feet square on the floor. I should have seen this pain coming ... I spent half-days in a cushy office chair with my left leg on a chair and facing 75 degrees toward my computer screen. Twisted position.

A positive: I got my knee scooter. Great mobility. Speed. Comfort…

What positive things happened today?

I started the smashed-foot work out. There are plenty of u-tube videos that show successful workouts without putting any weight on your foot. Key word search: Footless workout, smashed-foot work out.

I lifted weights, did push-up and basically started moving. What an awesome feeling!

My next appointment is in two weeks. My Oxy pain meds are down from 2 pills every four hours to one every six hours. This is a major pain break-through!…

Hi everyone.. I went paragliding in April 2014 and had a bad landing. Broke my right leg fibula bone from rotational injury.



I had surgery twice. The first surgery was on 21 Apr. My consultant ortho put a metal plate, 5 short screws & 1 long syndesmotic screw. Post surgery - the doctor wasn't sure why my bone is not in normal configuration & shows a slight gap near the ankle bone (talus).



I had a 2nd opinion review, MRI & CT Scan. It led to further devastation… Continue

I called my doc for a refill for my 5-325 mg oxycod/acetamin. They'll call me back. I want to find a local resource where I can do water therapy for my broken ankle.

Pain is tolerable and I am not too bored as I have my on-line activities to enjoy and occupy my time. 

I am eager to begin active rehabilitation instead of resting and waiting. I know I can get into a rut pretty fast.

Wednesday is an xray and visit with Ortho Doctor.

Knee weakness?

Since I've had my surgery to get a rod inserted in my leg, my knee has felt rather weak, any exercises I can do to strengthen it back up? Not having physio, those nurses are crazy lol.

Three months post break - getting better each day

It has been a little while since my last blog post, and what a busy few weeks it has been.My last hospital appointment was on the 15th July, where I had the X-Ray to determine the progress of my healing. This was a good news session, in that I propelled myself in with the two aluminium sticks and was given the all clear to go from Non Weight Bearing to, as the consultant put it, "put as much weight through it as feels comfortabled and don't be scared of doing harm... it's healing nicely and…See More
