Thursday before last, my left ankle started to hurt. The Tallas bone, outside bottom edge of the foot. It happens every few months that it would hurt a bit and with some Advil and Ice would be fine the next day.

WELL.... not so now. My damned foot swelled up like a balloon. Took till this Tuesday for it to not be swollen, still hurts like hell.

So after first trying to say I had Gout, they put me on some really good high end narcotics, and tomorrow I get an MRI. They THINK I have some how pulled, torn or bruised some soft tissue.

Whih sucks cause I cannot work till I can walk again (Oh did I mention, cannot walk anymore. Foot hurts, and swells with walking)

GRRR... and I got Season Passes for the family to SeaWorld. :(

You think its really the talus? That's not really on the bottom of the foot. Lateral portions of the foot that are on the bottom are the calcaneus and cuboid, and then you get to V metatarsal.

Well Xray's showed nothing, and my wife think's its the talus (spelling + me = the sux) based on location of the pain.

Oh the Xray's DID show heavy calcification and scarring around the Achilles tendon and the Calcaneus... waiting on the MRI... I'mma gonna try to get a copy of those too.

The talus and calcaneus do articulate(talus on top of the calcaneus) and share ligamentous connections. Its just that the talus bone itself is neither lateral or on the inferior side of the foot. It sounds chronic based on your situation so recovery is going to be tougher and longer than it would if it was an acute injury.

I had a friend who had similar symptoms and it turned out to be plantar fasciitis. Whatever it is, I hope you get better soon.

I hope you are feeling better soon! Nothing like being stuck in the hospital, in a cast, on crutches or unable to walk in a wheelchair. Been there, done that for 3 months in 2006.

Dear God please no. I just want to know what's wrong, and how to fix it. The pain goes from bearable to excruciating.

I hate that you feel excruciating pain. Good meds help with that?

If your Season pass to Seaworld also icludes Aquatica I suggest you hobble along there and relax.

If you do follow justabubba's suggestion regarding front seats at Seaworld do yourself a big favor, provide yourself with a waterproof cape/coat/ tarp because when Shamoo gets going with his tail flip, you are really going to need protection from water splash.

Ready to scream.

My MRI was done and FAXED on Fri at 3pm. My "fmaily practitioner" hasn't gotten around to reading it. "We have a 72 hour policy" for getting back to patients on the MRI...

I'm about to pull my hair out here.

Just talked to them, they "might get to it" before 530PM today.
