day 813 – ligament troubles

image

physio appointment can’t get any earlier than this. having a 7am appointment basically meant that i was still half asleep and struggling to be coherent which made it almost impossible for me to clearly explain to my physio what had happened at the time of injury. i mustered the most vague explanation, physio was better off finding the answers and figuring out the severity of the injury himself, and he did. he went through a series of tests to check for ligament tears and thankfully reported negative, but a ligament sprain isn’t something to be taken lightly by all means. today’s appointment had me on both ice and then electro, and that usually signals a prescribed rehab process is on its way. so that means no sports or physical activities until he says otherwise

day 199 – reminder

must remind myself of these wise words from a fortune cookie. have to remain patient during this recovery process and do what’s best for my ankle to make sure it doesn’t impede on any recovery progress. so hard for me to sit still and wait for things to happen and let it recover ever so slowly

day 198 – doctors note

physio’s final words for me until further notice, but to me it feels more like a death sentence. my physio knows me best so i will try to cooperate and trust that he can get me back as soon as possible. i will be ready once i get cleared but i also know that i may have to miss this competition
