Ankle injury

Whether the need is great or small, there is power in prayer, especially when God's people raise their voices together.

TAM, I'm very sorry to hear about your injury. A lower extremity injury that limits mobility is extremely debilitating and makes everything you normally do easily much more difficult. A couple years ago I badly tore up a tendon in my ankle that required surgery. The damage was so extensive the doc had to sew the damaged tendon to another one alongside it. Weeks of crutches, month of boot, and months of rehab followed before I could get most (not all) of the function back.

Prayers sent for successful negotiation with the docs, perfect surgery, and rapid recovery.

Good luck and Best Wishes for all.

I stopped in the ER at Baptist Hospital in Arkadelphia, AR a couple weeks ago with an internal disorder and was given several papers prior to examination. One document announced that if the patient could not pay the billed amount, it would be reduced 72%. That may be a federal law?

I did all but break bones in my ankle a few years ago. I stretched my ligaments and tendons to the limit. I know they are dorky as all get out, but crocks helped Me as much as anything and enabled me to walk with moderate pain.

Here's an update on my ankle.....mostly good news:

(1) No surgery for now. The posterior tibialis tendon is torn, but my doctor wants to treat it conservatively. If that doesn't work, we can consider surgery down the road. Praise Jesus.

(2) I am to not let my bare left foot touch the floor for the next 4-6 weeks. No more showers ( :grumble ), baths only, with my foot elevated. The boot only comes off for bedtime and bathing.

(3) She gave me an "Even Up" to wear on my right shoe, to make my stride length equal while wearing the boot, so that I can walk closer to normal, and I've e ordered a knee scooter which arrives in the next day or two so that I can get around parking lots and such.

(4) If after 4-6 weeks I show some signs of recovery, we will begin some aggressive physical therapy.

(5) If this treatment plan is not successful, then we can always revisit doing surgery. Thank you everyone for your prayers.

(6) I'm going to be custom fitted with an orthotic for my right foot, and an some kind of ankle brace for my left foot, which (as I understand it) acts as a combination orthotic and brace. I have no idea what this looks like. Anyway, regardless of outcome and/or surgery, these are more or less permanent I guess.

So it could be worse, but it will also be a major inconvenience for the next month or two.
