Delayed recovery?

I have been going for physio without miss every week. Yesterday, my feet was sore throughout the whole day which was abit weird coz it never happened this way before. 

I’ve only started using the gym 2 days ago at the physio centre and it was all right. 

Anyway, went for my physio session today and when they were doing the ultrasound, I felt pain – again its weird coz I’ve never felt any discomfort by doing ultrasound before. They did comment that my ankle was swollen bigger than 2 days ago. What’s happening to me?!?! 😱

The doctor came to inspect. He explained that its rare for him to jab his patients with the Hyalgan gel twice and I told the doctor to give me some time and I can assure you that my leg will heal! No way I want to endure the whole jab in the feet again!

So, today they put me on this….. 👇🏻

Felt like Dato’ Lee Chong Wei all of a sudden 😝

Weekly thing

Its the start of a weekly rehab. Will need to do physio 3 times a week now. I think day by day it has helped me alot with the recovery process. I dont mind being pampered everytime I come here. Hehehhe

Orthopedic to the rescue

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. 

That’s us happily waiting for our turn to do x-ray and MRI

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?

Me: Netball

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 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 👇🏻

new boots! its a new trend! =p and my colleague got a finger brace due to her chipped bone
