Well, my summer was off to a great start, with chemo break and all sorts of activities planned. WRONG!!!! I was getting dresssed after a fabulous day at the pool with my daughter and her classmates (special needs class) and lost my balance, fell onto my left foot, foot folded in half, I fell over in slow motioin, smashing the left side of my foot, and breaking the toe bones.
When the ortho looked at the Xray, he said I had to go to a big hospital, as it looked like I may have to have surery, due to how thin my bones are. Sigh........ probably the effects of too much chemo/steroids etc. I am 56, and a bit early for osteoporosis.
I find out Monday, if I get to have a cast or if I have to have surgery. Either way, I have a cast for 2 months.
I have worked through my feelings, and not as ANGRY as I was at first. The WHY does not get answered and there is nothing i can do but try to enjoy the time elevating my feet.
As Gilda always said, "It's always somethin'!"
