Called the hospital first thing in the morning to see the doctor. Fortunately, there’s available slot at 9.45am. I dragged a colleague of mine to see the doctor who had bruised finger due to netball as well (same day as my injury).
Met the doctor, very nice one and looked very concern about my condition. He couldnt comment much at first until he sees the results from x-ray and MRI. So, i was wheeled down to the Imaging section.
This one handsome looking dude came to me and said its time for the MRI. While he was pushing the wheelchair, we had this short conversation:
Him: What’s the cause of injury?
There was this short pause and he continued…
Him: Playing against BNM?
Me: Yes (darn it! Good guess)
Him: What position did you play?
Me: Goal shooter
Him: I’ve met your defender, your goal keeper now you… I’ve yet to meet your coach
Me: 🙄 You wont be seeing her for sure! But my goal attack is here as well! You might be seeing her too today! 😂
We’re famous in this hospital due to Netball. Bahahahahhahaha! Yeah.. Coach was hard on us 😔
MRI machine was soo cool! Only my leg that was in the machine, my top half body was outside of that machine and luckily I get to lie down on my back, comfy full of pillows and blanket to keep me warm. He even put on a headphone with Mix.fm music on. Nice! But he didnt tell me how long it will take so I decided to count the number of songs that was played – total 5 songs! So it was approximately 25minutes.
Got both my x-ray and MRI results done, so they wheeled me back to the doctor. This doctor was too direct to me by starting his conversation as “you hurt quite badly la. You tore 2 out of 3 ligaments and you have a bruised cartilage”. I havent got a clue what that means at first, then he came with the feet statue and started explaining. All in all, he said I needed the Hyalgan gel to be inserted on my cartilage via a jab! a.k.a 💉! Owh-uh! Told the doctor about my history with needles and the thought of him jabbing my ankle? No way! So I asked for alternatives and he suggested to take gas to knock me out and I am loving that idea! Hahaha.. so tomorrow morning is my date with the doctor!
For now, this was what I got back at the end of the day 👇🏻
