Update after the orthopedist

Posted in Daily life tagged , , at 5:48 pm by Lauren

The orthopedist didn’t think my fracture looked messy or complicated or troublesome in any way. He asked me a few questions and said that the general rule for broken toes is: do what is comfortable and wear what is comfortable. So I can exercise or wear closed-toed shoes, as long as my foot feels fine. (However, this sounds like a great excuse to wear sandals to school for 4-6 weeks while my toe heals.)

And that’s that! No more visits, no treatment or restrictions. Well, except one: he said I shouldn’t kick my husband any more.

    I am glad you are feeling better. If possible, Teresa would wear sandals all year round. Don’t give her any ideas.

    I would support Teresa in this. I so prefer an unencumbered foot! I thought about asking the doctor for an actual note to give my school, saying I had to wear open-toed shoes.

    Lauren, we have talked and talked about not kicking Allen. When needed, kick a pillow – less damage to your person. GLAD there is no necessary other treatments – but sorry you broke your toe!
