My foot is broken
updated by rck, 2004-11-25

Today I broke my foot at my every wednesday California Workout. It happend fast, it made a cracking noise, it hurt a bit. On the other hand, it didn't hurt as much as rendering me unable to finish my Workout.

The accident

Then, we did some rather nasty jumping on and off the step. That's where it happend. A loud "CRACK!" and my foot needed a timeout. Heidi saw it and quickly came to me to help me.

I said that everything was alright and went to put my foot under cold water, like Heidi told me. After a while I came back and continued the workout until the very end. Without the jumping.

After the workout

Somehow, my foot was rather swollen. Thats unusual. That never happend before. So I drove right to the hospital in Korneuburg. After x-ray it was clear: The foot is broken. I got a gypsum with a split. And I may not step on it.

The doctor, the nurses, all of the people I met there were incredible nice. My fear of injections is legendary. Still, calm words of the nurses made the injection actually quite enjoyable. I have to inject myself every day now to prevent trombosis.

I of course called my father after realizing that things were more serious than I thought first. He came and helped me quite a bit. After a visit to the pharmacist we drove to my home. The second or third step -- still on the street -- was fatal. I'm not used to crutches so my back nearly kissed the street. While I could avoid that, I did a quick step on the asphalt. So: Back to the hospital as the gypsum didn't give me any more support.

    Crap on a crap cracker!

    It's never a good time to get injured, is it. So inconvenient. And you're right, all in a blink of the eye. BAM you're in for a recovery. I'm sure you'll heal fine, bones always heal.

    Sorry to hear your news, but glad to see your spirits are up.

      Sorry to hear your news, but glad to see your spirits are up.

      Thank you for your kind words! Actually, things went out very good I think. It's been a wednesday evening. Mondays and Wednesdays are my busy days; Thursdays and Friday as well as the weekend aren't.

      So: I get my walking gypsum on monday, can attend the english test quite nicely (even with my current gypsum) and will hopefully be able to drive my car again starting with tuesday.

      One great relief: Injecting myself doesn't hurt at all. After pushing the fluid in, it burns for a couple of minutes. That's it.
